Spending Spree/Shopping Freeze

So I'm kind of on a spending freeze right now. My dad sent me a picture of this via text the other day with the response "either you've hit the lottery or you're really broke right now". Well, it's kind of the latter of the two. 

The past few weeks I was in a rut, so what did I do? Go shopping of course. Now I've got a credit card bill of about $200 that needs to be paid off, while still trying to keep my everyday expenditures down. So for the next two weeks I'll be on a spending freeze.

I will not be buying anything that I don't absolutely need, which most of the time is food, but I'm going to try and cut that down by bringing snacks and lunch. Upon my bed at home you see boxes from about six different places that I'll be sharing in the next week or two! 

Have you ever done a spending freeze? Did it go as you planned? 


  1. Ahh we're not really on a spending freeze, but we are definitely on a "spend as little as possible and save as much as possible rule, because having a baby is apparently really expensive, even WITH insurance!

  2. Ummm I feel you - end of the month is painful and moving was beyond a brutal blow to my paycheck.

  3. YES I have - and I got my credit card balances to $0 as a result :) It's HARD to do but can be very worth it.


Thanks for saying hello! I love hearing from all of you & reply back to everyone as quickly as I can! xoxo
