I’ve gotten free manicures, facials and even a full tank of gas once based on some frugal living tips.

One thought on “February is No Buy Month at Savvy Brown

  1. Carrie

    I honestly wish I could go on a strike with spending. I truly have a shopaholic mindset and it sucks!!! It doesn’t matter what it is.. I just have to go out and by something every single day. If I don’t, I fall into a mini depression of some sort.

    However, even though I do spend, I started the 52 week saving challenge the beginning of this year and it’s been going great. Even though all the times I’ve eaten out or gone to Victoria’s Secret, that could have went into my online savings account.

    I needed to see this post. Thank you.
