7-Day Money Challenge…

Yahoo! Finance has an article today called the 7-Day Money Challenge .

Basically, the challenge calls for 3 steps:

  1. Calculate how much cash you need to cover a week’s worth of variable expenses such as gas, groceries, quick fast food stops, books, music, gifts, etc.
  2. Be honest and don’t overestimate to give yourself a big cushion.
  3. Set the calculated amount aside and only use cash, no debt or credit cards.

Okay…I am feeling up for the challenge except I will allow myself to use my debit card for gas since this is actually more of a fixed expense for me. I will let you know how it comes out. =)
