Spring is approaching, we have unseasonably warm weather, and I am finally going outdoors with fewer than three layers. We never had a proper winter, but I still enjoy the advent of sixty-degree days.
As the weather warms and freezes become a thing of the past, though, I'm starting a new freeze. Last year, my spending freeze only lasted a month. This year, I'm taking on a longer challenge: from today, the beginning of a new month, through the end of April, I will not make any purchases besides groceries, gas, and actual necessities (medicine, soap, and the like).
I might try a freeze or two in other areas of my life, like this really delicious looking orange freeze. It looks quite simple, too. The recipe (originally from Parents magazine) is available here.
