No-Spend Month | What I Spend In The First 10 Days of January

I am currently 10 days into my no-spend month. How has it been so far? I’m sure you’re wondering if I already broke down and went on a spending spree. Oh well, you’re about to find out!

No-Spend January | Join The Challenge

A No-Spend January Challenge is a great way to start the new year! I’ve done weekly spending challenges before, but never a full month, so I’m really excited to try this out.
