This is an interesting experiment that I am backing 100%. Erin Schneider is doing something even *I* don’t have the courage to do, she is venturing off this year to not spend more than $20 on one item. For the whole year, 365 days, she can’t spend more than $20. I mean, this is going to be really hard. Think about it, let’s say she fills up her gas tank…that’s more than $20 right there. Of course there are tiny caveats, for example I am sure she wouldn’t spend more than $20 on gas in one filling as she can certainly get it up to $20 and use it for a day or two.
I do believe this novel approach though will bring light saving money and learning how to live within ones means. In the meantime, I applaud her and invite you to track her progress in this daunting task. Her blog is located here: http://cheapbutnoteasy.blogspot.com/
