no-spend january

Erin over at Love, Fun, & Football posted last week about doing a January spending freeze, and it really made me want to join in! Although it may seem ridiculous, I was really disappointed in myself that I only paid 53% of my take-home pay toward my student loans this past year. I often joke that C pays for us to live, and I pay Sallie Mae. Well, apparently I pay a lot more people than just Sallie Mae.

Last year's spending
So I'm going to attempt to start the new year off right with a no-spend January. Here's what that means for me:
  • No going out to eat (aww MAN!)
  • No KnitPicks purchases
  • No Amazon purchases, with the exception of my monthly vitamin subscription.
  • No etsy. Don't even LOOK at etsy.
  • No Target. Don't even go to Target. Nothing good can come from it.
Things I will continue to spend money on during no-spend January:
Let's see how this goes! Wish me luck!


  1. YAY! I'm so excited you'll be joining in and rocking it out with us to start the year!!! :)

  2. I'm glad we are both doing this starting 2014...hopefully we can keep each other motivated :) we got this!
