I’m so sorry I’m posting this so long after I should have, it’s been a busy few days!
But, here is the update on my first frugal finance challenge. I challenged myself to eat breakfast at home every day for one week – and I was successful! I know it doesn’t seem like much, but when I had to be out the door at 7:15, packed and ready for camp, it was much easier to just grab something on the way. All last week I ate at home, and it wasn’t that difficult. I just needed to plan ahead and give myself a few extra minutes. This is one that I’m going to try to continue as much as I can.
Potential Savings: $30 🙂
As for Challenge #2 – I’m going to give up my “after camp treats”. I’m pretty bad at stopping on my way home and grabbing something to eat, or getting something at Starbucks or Tim Horton’s. So, this week I’m going to ignore any of those cravings and if I really need something, I can make it when I get home. I’m not sure how difficult this will be. I think sometimes it’s more of a ritual, not an actual desire for something. We will see if I can stick to it! Check back on Saturday to find out how I did.
What are you challenging yourself to this week?
