    For this year's Spending Detox challenge, I'm choosing 3 challenges that will help me create a strong foundation for my mindset with money. I chose: #1 - 'No Spending' Zone #2 - Create A Holiday Budget #6 - Give the Gift of Time For number one, I'm locking in, traditionally, the 4 biggest spending days of the year: November 27th - November 30th. This encompasses Black Friday through Cyber Monday, which means I'll have to avoid those pesky sales this year. Why? Because if I can avoid spending...

    For various reasons, this is the only challenge that fits me. I tend to overspend and I never negotiate the price and/or look for alternatives. This happens especially with: Food delivery apps the labels: "Amazon's Choice" / "Best Seller" When I'm not in a discount supermarket to get groceries I'll do my best 😱 😁

    Spending during the holidays: Year after year, the holidays slowly shift from joyful winter glee, to a race to see who can spend the most money. Retailers all vying for your attention, with bargain gifts abound, and who can forget a present for your step-mom, cousins, siblings, friends and the pup or kitty. It's no wonder why people feel drained and spent come January 1st! But, what if there was a better way to keep more money in your wallet this holiday season, without losing any of that...

    For the Spending Detox Challenge, I decided to go with #2, make a holiday budget and #3 don’t overpay. Challenge #2: I decided to go with this one because I usually splurge during the holidays. I often buy last-minute gifts for family and friends, and that’s usually the worst time to buy. My nephews are 8 and 10 years old so I always try to be “the cool” uncle by buying the hottest holiday toy or a full-priced video game. This year, I decided that I am going to plan earlier when it comes to...

    This is great! I'm usually pretty bad a giving gifts around the holidays, so I definitely understand buying expensive last-minute gifts, although, I usually do it as a way to compensate for being a bad gift giver. Also, the "White Elephant" gift giving is definitely out for my friends and family this year too. Not worth the stress or hit to the bank. Good luck with the challenge, keep us updated with how it goes!

    I bought some "Amazon's Choice" stuff for my 2 years old niece... I'll try to stick to my commitment throughout December.

    UPDATE FOR MY SPENDING DETOX CHALLENGE: Okay, so, I decided to not spend any money from Black Friday through Cyber Monday of this year. I did not realize how tough this would be... There was so many things that I wanted to buy that weekend I almost lost the challenge I think 100 times lol. However, I stuck it out, and didn't spend any unnecessary money on those days and now I have a ton of cash in my bank account to add onto for 2021 or invest next year, while the rest of my friends are...
