Have a cheap month

This is something I’ve been thinking about for a few years and wanted to try, but some kind of upcoming “must have” expense always got in the way. Not this time baby! I decided to try this during February 2016. The idea: to be as stingy as humanly possible during one month.

I’m locking my hard earned cash up this month


The objective is to cut costs as much as you possibly can. I’m aiming to not spending money on ANYTHING more than I absolutely must. Like food and hello kitty merchandise. It’s going to be fun to challenge myself and see how low I can push my mandatory expenses. Can’t do much about rent, but I’m sure I’ll be able to finish far below my normal monthly budget.


I think it will be difficult, but not impossible. This month is a good time to try it as well, because I have a LOT of schoolwork, and I also need to strictly follow the training and meal plan from coach John. So my February looks like a month of hard training, hard studying, and hard stinginess! As Borat would put it; Great success!


One of my 2016 goals is to travel the trans-Siberian railroad with my brother ans father, and also enter North Korea if possible, so I need to start saving for that. If you had a super-stingy month, how much could you save? Try it and get back to me! I’ll post my progress by the end of February. $$
