I read this in Saturday’s Guardian and I have been thinking about it ever since. A year without spending. I couldn’t do a year but I could try a month. Like Judith Levine my spending would include essentials.
- Basic toiletries
- Basic detergents
- Internet access
- One paper per week (Saturday Guardian or Sunday Times)
- Existing standing orders (include household bills, pension etc)
- Pet food
My spending would not include
- Charity shops
- Eating out
- Chocolate & sweets
- Books, CDs etc
- Ebay & other impulse internet buys
August is when I’ll begin. From the first to the thirty-first. Family members with August birthdays do not fret. I’ll see you in September instead.
Will I be blogging about it? But of course.
