Friday + spending freeze

We've got lots to do today, mostly boring errands though. We're beginning a spending
freeze for the month of January, so watch out for some different posts as we find
creative ways of not spending money! The rules are simple, we can buy:
food (and necessary toiletries, cleaners)
gas
and that's it really. I'll be honest, a month of this sounds like a challenge,
especially if I find myself in a thrift store. I guess the key is to avoid unnecessary
stores altogether.

For now, I'm leaving you with this, a beautiful home found via Bolig.

  5. I think I'm in serious need of a spending freeze as well. Last year was insane!

    But it's a harsh task. Good luck!!

    And I'm in love with simple kitchens.... How serene and nice!

  6. Love that interior.
    You taunt us!

    Spending freeze sounds like a great idea. Except the thing I spend most of my disposable cash on is having lunch when I am out. That would technically count as food but it's pretty frivolous.
    I'm excited to see your no-spending inspired posts.

  11. Hhmmm, I need a spending freeze as well. But in January ? Here in Belgium that's when we have winter sales. So it might be next to impossible to maintain any serious financial restraints...
