That Carla's at it again! Making up spending challenges right off the bat to keep us on our financial toes. And thank goodness for it! I'm in on the January No-Low Spend Challenge because, quite frankly, I need it. It's been a ridiculously spendy couple of months.
My goals are as follows:
1) $750 off my debt
2) $50 to my RRSP
3) $100 for groceries...er, £100, I mean...
4) Track my spending daily.
5) No unnecessary spending: rent & groceries only!
6) Cash only
Realistically, this is very attainable. I've transferred some funds to my Canadian bank account and should have my first debt payment taken care of in the next few days. I'm finding groceries are, generally, cheaper here than at home, so I can actually do quite well with £100 I believe. I have a few changes I want to make to my diet, so I told my cousin I would buy my own groceries from here on in. There are some markets around, but a number of the items I want can be bought and used over a period of time, leaving only perishables to replenish weekly.
Looking forward to seeing how we do!
