While looking at Lifehacker during lunch today, I saw a link to this story about a Money Free Weekend.
We are not allowed to spend any money on anything, no matter what.I'm not sure I like the idea, but it can't hurt. Anyway, in this article, it talks about 100 Things to do during a money free weekend, and there are some really interesting things. So, you may want to go check out the article, if nothing else, it can give you some cool ideas for a weekend project.
In other words, we can't make a run to the store to buy food, we can't
spend money on any sort of entertainment, and so on. Since we often do
our grocery shopping on Saturdays, on a "money free" weekend, we delay
it to Monday or Tuesday.
We can use our utilities, but no extra expenses on these utilities. No renting movies on cable, no text messages that aren't already covered by our cell phone plan, and so on.
