Pretty self explanatory I'm jumping on and taking on this 21 day challenge. 
Since I do not drink Soda I'm giving up my Sweet Tea. The struggle will be real. 
I've already given up candy and fast food. 
I'm not much for chips (unless there's salsa or queso involved) or ice cream. 
Biscuits, Bread, Muffins, Cookies.... now that will be a struggle. But its only 21 days. I can do anything for 21 days right. The depressing part about the whole deal is I have a jar of really good queso in my frig right now. Oh the struggle. 
But I have a goal and I want to meet it. Sooner rather than later!!! 

Basically there's no access spending during the month of January. One of my parents from Cola. does it every January. And she encouraged myself along with several others to jump on board and not do any access spending during the first month of the year. Of course you still have to pay your bills, buy grocery's and gas but other than that nothing else. Her family of 6 doesn't eat out, not even a coffee run, no trips to Target or the local Frozen Yogurt hut, not even a alcohol run during the month of Jan. Just the basic necessities. Her theory behind NO SPEND JANUARY is that you've gone out and spent a ton of money during the months of November and December in preparation for Christmas that this allows you to step back and relax on the stress of wants and needs from the store or random spending. I'm giving it a shot, can't be to hard right. Eeks, I suppose we will see. I have to say it will be much easier with it just being me at home, I'm a sucker and give in to the hubbs so much. I have a strong will power when I set out for something. 
I'll update ya at the end of the month to let you know how it went. 
Here's to the next month of no junk food what so ever and no spending. YIKES. Please pray for me.

The muffins, bread, pastries, cookies, etc thing would totally get me! I think I might try to do the no spend thing for Lent - and then give the extra money that I would have spent to a charity.
