Forget the Joneses Bootcamp on Mommysavers Forum

Happy almost 2009!

To ring in the new year I have been thinking about attempting a "no spend" or at least a "low spend" month in January. The idea is that you attemp to cut out all discretional spending for one month in order to get a handle on your spending, save some money, and maybe even cut down on new clutter entering your house while using up what is already there.

While looking for kindred souls in cyperspace I found the "Forget the Joneses Bootcamp" hosted on the Mommysavers forum. Not only do participants go on a 21-day spending freeze but they also complete various assigments created by Kim (Ms. Mommysaver) to help identify spending habits, distinguish between wants and needs, etc.

I'm going to use this blog to track my progess. Feel free to join in or just follow along with my success (or not).

Here's to a frugal 2009!
