It’s a bit hard to believe I know. But this challenge is coming to an end soon! I’m fairly certain that there’s been moments when we all thought this challenge would never end. Hopefully you have had a few “aha!” moments and have learned a lot through this process of not spending. I know we have. So, let’s get to it!

Reflections Week 4

Some questions for reflection on this past week:

  1. Did you enjoy to the fullest this past week and learn something new?
  2. Did you get some free items?
  3. Did you get some free money?
  4. How did the free date night go?
  5. What did your family do for fun?
  6. Did you make anything?
  7. Did you think of new ways to spendtime with family or friends without having to spend money?

This past week was all about getting free stuff, getting free money, having a free date night, enjoying some free family fun, and getting fearlessly crafty. I’m curious to know how each of you did.

What has been the best and hardest part of this challenge so far?

  1. By, the way, is there a way you can do something with the icons on the left? It’s hard to read some of your posts….. unless you can figure out how to make the margin earlier. You don’t have to approve this one. Just a suggestion…..

  2. I am a new visitor to your blog and I really like the idea. It’s very refreshing to realise that how much we can save by spending wisely. I always look for freebies, coupons, online promos, offers when I go to buy something I want and always ask the question do I really need to buy this before buying anything.. Really helps 🙂 thanks for sharing your post!
