May "No Spend" Month

I am challenging myself to do some thing really ambitious in May. We have a HUGE family vacation coming up in August and after looking over our budget with my husband last night, I realized that if we limit our spending to just bills, tithes, a lower food and misc. budget; the ENTIRE vacation fund can be saved in 1 month. I have made a vacation budget and plan to use the money wisely. Here are some rules for myself in May:

Pay Bills

$200 food budget-May

$55 fun/dining

$150 Misc

Save $860 for entire vacation
Besides church, drive 2 days or less
Continue to add to reg. savings accounts
No visits to Target

I am going to pray and ask the Lord to give me strength; it'll be tough, but with GOD,a ll things are possible!
