Well, I made it through the weekend with out using any plastic (from my wallet that is). I have to say that it’s hard. I am so used to whipping out those cards whenever I reach the front of the lines without really thinking much about how much I’m spending. It is really nice to not have that “I spent too much” guilty feeling at the end of the day. Of course, it helps that I didn’t leave the house Saturday and I don’t ever spend money on Sunday (except for paying tithing). It’s amazing how much temptation goes away when you take yourself away from the temptation… (I’m sensing a blog post about that…)
So, because I can only talk about me not spending money for so long, I have asked a friend to put in her two cents about the whole money thing. Felica is a really good friend I had in high school. I recently wrote a post for her blog, Always, Felica, which you can check out here. She talks all about our friendship and then I wrote a little about how I got through my second pregnancy while also taking care of a brand new baby. I won’t go into much detail about it, you can read it for yourself!
One thing I love about money is all the different ways that people can manage it. There are so many different points of view and strategies on how to spend it/not spend it/save it/what have you. I thought it would be neat to try and get a few of these different points of view and add them to this list of money related blog posts for the month. I love all view points. For instance, I am a strong proponent of the stay-at-home-mom gig, but I know that not everyone feels that same way. I also believe that plastic (in card form) is evil, but I’ll still be your friend if you use it now and again (because I might be guilty of that at times, too!) Anyway, the point is that I love to hear different ideas and feelings about money. I don’t know if there is any other object that can elicit so much emotion from people. That being said, if you wish to write a blog post for this theme, please let me know! I’ll review it and let you know if I think it would be a good fit for the 30 day cash only challenge. And as you will see from this post, it doesn’t have to be strictly about only using cash. I just want to hear what you think!
So, here is what Felica thinks!
