A month without purchasing anything?
27 December 2019 #1
Have you ever had a month without purchasing anything? I'm planning on going an entire year without purchasing anything besides the necessary stuff (food, fixing the car, phone if it breaks etc.). It feels like a massive yet possible undertaking! Have you done, or are you planning on doing something similar?

That's seems to be the common thing for those who are succeeding at not buying anything x) a plan is starting to form based on what everyone has said in this thread

#12 Oh yeah its possible! Last time I bought something for my self that wasnt necessary was Oktober 2018, I bought 2 pair of jeans so I had more then 1 pair at home xD After that I havent bought anything for myself O_o

That sounds amazing! I hope I can live up to something like what you've managed! I'm a little worried that I will try to convince myself that something is necessary even if it isn't in the beginning

I think I understand you. I've ended up in a bit of a spending habit myself, and I really want to break it so that I can start saving to buy a house some day.

#8 Oh that will probably be a problematic part for me as well :O maybe it would be smart to make sure there´s no money on my account or in my wallet to spend
