Keep Calm and Don't Spend challenge

It is the first of December, and for years that has meant time for one thing:

This month is no different, and I will post on both of my blogs to share things to be grateful for.

One thing you will be grateful for is not entering January with massive debt due to overspending in December.

So, here is my challenge, for the month of December, keep calm and don't spend anything on wants.

Do spend on needs, like food, and the gas bill etc, and on gifts if you are part of an exchange, but don't buy anything else.

Don't fall for sales, for tricks to get you into the store, waving your creditcard.

Don't spend, focus on things you are grateful for, each day. Focus on spending quality family time, playing games at the kitchen table, watching a plethora of Christmas movies on TV.

Feed your heart, not your deficit.

To make the challenge complete, I have made a tracker. Feel free to download it and print it out so you can hang it up somewhere in the house or put it in your planner.

I've made this thing in two versions, as I couldn't decide which one I liked best 😀
