Fiscal Fast

October 26th, 2012 at 12:43 pm

I am preparing to do a fiscal fast. I got the idea from the show Extreme Cheapskates. I am planning on starting tomorrow and going through Friday. The only money I plan on spending will be for gas, which has already been budgeted for.

I explained what I am trying to do to DD and she is on board. So we will see how it goes.

    I am confident you can carry out your plan so suggest you use the weekend to prepare for your fiscal fast challenge. You will need to prep a few meals, oven ready, sandwich fillings in the fridge with bread at hand. What is the plan for next week? Who will you see? Where will you go? What's the plan for Halloween fun or tricksters? What will you take for lunch? What snacks can you keep at work or in the car to block unplanned hits to your wallet. Delaying gratification is a major step forward.

    Good luck! Just remember that there are things that can come up without warning... there is no sense in beating yourself up over them. It is the stuff that you can control that will lead to the long term success -- cutting the discretionary spending is what will offer some insurance of a better financial situation. Smile Jerry
