The Crumbs family is on a challenge to go 30 days without spending money. Today’s post is an update as of day 21 (yesterday). You can read the rules of the challenge, and what inspired us to take such extreme action, here. Get caught up on the first 10 days of the challenge here.
Wow – are we at day 20 already? Not that this challenge has been easy – HAH! – but I’m surprised that we’re two-thirds of the way through and still chugging along. There was a part of me that thought we would have caved by now… although all bets are off when I can no longer make couscous.
I’m saving that very special meal for one of the last few days when Mr. Crumbs can’t possibly stand this for another day, lol.
It’s easy to come up with a grandiose plan of not spending any money when the idea is floating around your own head, but it’s entirely different to carry it out. That’s why I’m letting Mr. Crumbs take over the commentary of today’s update. I’ll go first with the menu, what the pantry is looking like and where there will likely be some hiccups. Then he’ll take over with his thoughts, since I’m sure you wives (and men) are wondering how The Husband is managing with the challenge too.
