No-Buy Month: Best Birthday Gifts Ever!

by frugalista on February 23, 2011

Cherrio! We are in the final stretch of No-Buy Month and I’m pretty excited. A) It’s my birthday today. B) I’ve gotten some great comments from people who have done No-Buy Month. My master plan has worked!!! *evil grin*

So, I wanted to share some of the feedback/quotes from the awesome people who took the challenge with me:

Ok maybe this no buy month thing is working… I just checked my bank account and I no longer have anxiety. Yea!!!!
–From LH on Twitter

Thank you! And thank you for introducing me to No-Buy Month. I saved soooo much and lost weight LOL
–From blogger QuixoticOnline via Twitter


It’s been a great month so far ; I’ve focused my spending energy on other things. I can’t wait to figure out how much I saved.
–From blogger, Luvin’ My Curves


You know the problem with #NoBuyMonth is no retail therapy. You’re forced to deal with your feelings.
–From TJ, a blogger. (I take this as a positive. Sometime you can’t spend your concerns away. Sometimes you have to face what’s in front of you. Shopping is for clothing your body. It’s not a sport or therapy.

So thank you all for your No-Buy Month comments. It makes me soo happy! I’m going to be on Martha Stewart Radio tomorrow (Thurs.) at 3:20 pm (et) I hope you can listen in. If you missed me on the Tom Joyner Morning Show, check it out here!!

How has No-Buy Month helped you? If you didn’t do it, would you do it in March? What about a No-Buy Week?
