I made a decision halfway through last month that I wasn't going to spend any extra money. I have enough each month, but just enough, and I haven't been saving any. We are hoping to go on a road trip this summer, and we need money for that. My other reason for not wanting to spend money is that I don't want extra stuff coming into our home. I want to use what we have-and be thankful for it!
It just so happens that some friends and I started a Bible study on the book of Daniel. We all decided to give up something, like expensive foods, sweets, or extra spending, for 6 weeks. So, now I have accountability! I've been doing well, although I did buy a large ice coffee yesterday. Giving up my ice coffee in the afternoon is the hardest! So, now I'm making a pot of coffee in the morning and putting it in the refrigerator. Then in the afternoon, I can have ice coffee without spending extra money!
