Buy Nothing Challenge *Edited

Buy Nothing Challenge - August 2009

Matt and I have decided to participate in Crunchy Chickens Buy Nothing Challenge for the month of August. ย Recently we realized our spending had gotten a little out of hand (I am blaming it on the exhaustion, I give in more easily when tired)ย and had a discussion of reeling it in , and this challenged popped up in my google reader the very next day. Basically we will be buying nothing but the essentials for the month of August.

*Quick disclaimer. Matt’s parents are here next week and we are hoping to sneak out on a date night just the two of us. More than likely we will go out to dinner which is not technically essential, but free baby sitters are free baby sitters. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. thats okay. i really dont need anything. i already told steph not to buy me anything. she listened for our anniversary i think, and she is for my birthday too.

  2. Such a great idea! I think I may jump on this too…. ๐Ÿ™‚ G ood luck! Let us know how it goes, especially with the babies who are so much fun to buy for!!!

  3. Eric bike parts are essential if your bike is used to commute and you need that part to keep riding it. Streamers for your handle bars are not essential.

  4. If you ask any new parents, date nights are essential, especially when there are free baby sitters (Note: you have free baby sitters across the street too)
