Friday Follow-Up...

Well, it is the end of the month. I am officially calling today the last day of my 'No Spend Month'! It has a been a great month and I've learned a lot!

The biggest accomplishment for this month was paying off $1400 worth of debt...yay! February will be a restock month for my pantry. I'll be heading to Sam's Club to buy 100lbs of flour! And many other items. It sounds like a lot of flour but that will have to last for two months and half of it is for our 'emergency supplies'. I also do a lot of baking and we eat homemade pizza once a week, so it doesn't last long. Plus, at $7.50/25lbs, it is a great deal.

I will pop in each week to give an update on my stocking up progress...and other tips.

Have a great weekend...

How exciting Michelle! Y'all have done so well and paying off that much debt...just wonderful! I hope you enjoy doing a little shopping - even if it is just for stocking up. I'm sure it will be fun.

Michelle, would you consider getting people to send you their NSM testimonies and posting them? I think it would be so neat to see them all in one place.

Just an idea. Don't know if you need that extra project. :-P

Anyway, great job!

We had somewhat of a NSM ourselves as we're crunched to get the money we need for plane fare to the States next month, and I find myself thinking, "Why don't we spend this frugally all the time?" :-/

I think that is a great idea! I'll see if I can get some people to write a testimony and if you are intersted in posting yours, just PM me on Sonlight and I'll give you my email.

Great job, Michelle on finishing strong, and on a great looking blog!!!

Woo-hoo for you!!!!!!

You know what I would love to see you do?

Kind of a top ten list of tips for doing this successfully for someone who might want to try it. Or top ten things you have learned from this experience!

Susan, that is a great idea. I will work on putting something together this weekend. Thanks for the suggestion!!!
