No money Monday...

Java over at Never Growing old is going to revamp her blog, which may or may not include a Meet me on Monday post (I have my fingers crossed it does, those are so fun!)  But in the mean time I thought I would share one of my New Year's resolutions with you, its "no money Monday's" and the goal is to spend as little and preferably no money on Monday's.  We are including things like keeping the gas stoves turned off, heat turned down, eating left overs.  The great by-product is its also a great way to encourage house cleaning on Mondays!  I also spend time at my email reading my paid to read emails and taking surveys, its a great way to earn a little pocket change, but it tend to save it all up for something big, like a trip with my girl friends.

Did you make a resolution this year?  I would love to hear about it and if you are keeping it.  My other resolution is the same this year as it is every year, exercise more, which I am actually pretty hit or miss with depending on what I have going on that day, and yup, exercise fits in great with the "no money Monday" program.

Have a great start to the week!




  1. What a clever idea. Mondays are icky anyway. So this is a good way to round one out.

  2. that is a great idea!! kudos if you can manage it long term, mondays are always the days I look for a loop hole or easy solution too!

  3. Oooh! Sounds like a great idea! I might steal it.

  4. This sounds like a great idea! Thanks for sharing it!!!

  5. Great idea! I think I'll have to adopt something like this for our family. The ideas are already hitting me: no TV is a good one to start off with. And what better way to end the weekend and begin a new week? Thanks :)

  6. So, could you enlighten me on paid to read emails and surveys?

    The No Money Monday is a great idea. I'll just tell the teen to throw on an extra fleece and then I'll have to watch him like a hawk to keep him away from the thermostate.


I love to read your comments, but due to spamming I have had to turn on the word verification again. Sorry for the extra step.
