I saw this picture and challenge on Craft and Found the other day and it has gotten me to think its a good month to have this be the motto for July. I can't say that I will stick religiously to this since Mason needs a new white shirt and shoes for church (growth spurt) but I'm going to ask myself seriously "Do I really NEED this today" before spending. I should do that all the time but I'm going to work on it more this month. Of course gas and food have to be purchased but thinking about "Do I really NEED this" can also be applied there. I have been carpooling and combining trips so I only need to fill my car twice monthly. Thats an improvement! I know I can do more if I try. I love a challenge since it pushes my limits and makes me work harder. With all that said, I am going to take this on and I encourage everyone to do the same.
So Shop Hop is over, my kids camps are over, and its a good time for me to step up this month and see what I can accomplish. We are going on vacation at the end of the month but it is the very end of the month so I'm going to see if I can make it until then.
Wish me luck. Anyone else out there game to be more thrifty in July?
