But I added that we should make it a challenge. We have (kind of) separate budgets for household spending. I thought it'd be fun. We'd have a no-spend challenge for the month, see how much each of us can bring back to the kitchen table at the end of the month. He said no. Actually, it was a HELL NO! Adding that I'm too good at that "crap" and that I'd mop him up. :touched: How sweet. hahaha. Guess I'm on my own. So no challenges, just a post here if you're up for a no-spend or pantry only cooking or something to kick off the year.... I'll add mine in the next post.
