March’s financial challenge is to curb impulse spending.  I’ve actually done okay on this so far, I think. I did grab a bag of snack cheese at the grocery store on a whim, but it was new and looked so yummy!  How could I resist?

I’m really working to try and only buy things I need this month, and things that I’ve planned to spend money on. As with the past challenges I’m not going to tally up and move money into my savings account. I know this kind of defeats the purpose, but I don’t have a good way to calculate how much that would be.

I’m also planning on going back over the spending spreadsheet and making sure it’s up to date.  I’m hoping to see a trend that shows less spending as the months go by, but I’m not sure I’ve done very well with that so far.

I’ll check back in at the end of the month.
