No Spend November Link Up

I'm  going to try something new this month. I love a little challenge and this will be perfect for my situation. If you follow my blog, you probably already know I'm making November a no spend month. If you don't follow my blog, you definitely should! I've seen these little challenges before and always wanted to try it out. And what better month, considering I need to be saving for Christmas! 

So what exactly am I not going to spend my money on? I love to buy junk, literally junk. I love going to antique shops, consignment stores and flea market malls and buying anything that I think looks cool. So I'm going to refrain from buying junk. 
I'm also going to refrain from buying clothes. My closet is so full I couldn't find another place to put something if I did buy it. And you want to know what is sad. The only day I don't wear scrubs of pajamas are on Saturday and Sunday, so do I really need 50 winter outfits?  No probably not, but I can't help myself sometimes.
Also this month I'm not going to buy one single craft supply. I have several crafts in mind with the supplies on hand, therefore I'm going to force myself to complete the crafts I bought the supplies for instead of buying new supplies for different crafts!
I only have 2 exceptions to my no spend month, I can still buying Christmas gifts and I will go Black Friday shopping. There's no way I'm missing Black Friday! And majority of everything I buy on Black Friday is a gift anyhow! 
 
So I encourage you to try this challenge with me.  Link up below with a post about what you're going to refrain from spending your money on, then on the 15th we will meet again for a progress post, and on the 29th we will finish with a how we did post.  And it's okay if you break down and buy your self something, maybe in the end you will have at least saved yourself a little bit of money!

I don't know about you but I'm excited to see how much money I can save during November!
