Introducing the 2015 Choose Thrift First Challenge

Family Balance Sheet

In 2014, the Grocery Budget Challenge encouraged us to keep our grocery spending in line and to be creative with our meal planning so that we do not over-spend. So for 2015, I want to challenge myself and you, to rethink our purchases by taking advantage of more cost effective solutions, like borrowing, buying second hand, or just making do with what we already have. My mother recently borrowed some luggage from us for a plane trip.

Choose Thrift First Challenge – January Meeting

Family Balance Sheet

In 2015 I’m challenging myself to rethink purchases by taking advantage of more cost effective solutions like borrowing, buying second hand, or just making do with what we already have. My mother recently borrowed some luggage from us for a plane trip. Can I make do with something else around my house? How did you do in January?

Choose Thrift First – April Meeting

Family Balance Sheet

In 2015 I’m challenging myself to rethink purchases by taking advantage of more cost effective solutions like borrowing, buying second hand, or just making do with what we already have. My cousin’s mother’s husband’s uncle’s wife’s sister on Facebook brought bed bugs into her house when she bought a used sofa off of Craigslist… shudder, the story still makes me itch and I think we’ll be buying a new sofa.

Choose Thrift First Challenge – March Meeting

Family Balance Sheet

In 2015 I’m challenging myself to rethink purchases by taking advantage of more cost effective solutions like borrowing, buying second hand, or just making do with what we already have. Make a list of what you need and take it along to your favorite thrift store FIRST before you go to a regular store. My mother recently borrowed some luggage from us for a plane trip. Can I make do with something else around my house? How did you do in February?
