The March challenge is over! Here’s the full set of update/results posts:
Now that March is officially over, the final results are in.
With a grand total of $94.00, We finished out the month under our goal of $100!
Since last week, we’ve added $20.69 to our household care total for March:
- 2 more mason jars
- 2 rolls toilet paper
- Vinegar (for cleaning)
We bought 2 more jars for my wife’s salad-in-a-jar lunch plan; she’s sticking with it - keeping healthy and keeping thrifty!
Beyond that, it was more staples - the standard stuff we get in this category that we can’t reasonably cut out.
Overall, I’m proud of us for sticking under the $100. Now for the big challenge - maintaining this in the coming months.
As I said when the challenge launched - these changes are intended to be sustainable; pushing from one month to another or one category isn’t a real accomplishment.
From here on out, I’ll report how we’re doing on household care in the monthly summary for other challenges. By the time I get enough challenges under my belt, you’ll probably get to see the majority of our monthly budget :)
How is your month looking?
I hope you were able to meet your goal as well. If you weren’t, don’t get discouraged - pick a new target and go from there.
Perfection is the enemy of good - make sure you’re continuously improving; as long as you’re doing that, you are headed in the right direction!
Find me on twitter and let me know how you did this month!
