Our no new "stuff" in 2013 Challenge

We issued a challenge to ourselves to buy nothing new for one entire year. Used items if necessary (like clothing) are okay as are consumables (food, medications, etc). We are several weeks into the challenge and I am recording our progress on my blog.

Just thought I would share the links if anyone wants to follow along or even better join me!

The rules: http://mimi-on-a-mission.blogspot.co...challenge.html

February's update: http://mimi-on-a-mission.blogspot.co...ch-update.html

March week 1:http://mimi-on-a-mission.blogspot.co...challenge.html

The plan is to do one update post per week for the rest of the year showing our journey. We are really enjoying the challenge so far!

Re: Our no new "stuff" in 2013 Challenge

Thanks We have our first real challenge: My oldest has to make a leprechaun trap for school. Of course she has these grand plans for what she wants to do and I have to figure out how to do it without running to the dollar store for supplies. The biggest problem is that it has to be triggered by the leprechaun and not the student....

great blog I have to admit I am a little jealous of the Airman's Attic! How cool is that resource! It is nice to read a blog with how NOT to spend money. It makes it fun to think outside of the box and figure out a way around not buying new items. Way to go
