Here goes nothin'...

"here goes nothing" (American & Australian informal)
something that you say just before you do something that you think will not be successful. (Just incase you all needed an explanation of this posts title!...lol)

In the month of July I will attempt #18 on my 30 before 30 list, which reads as follows: 
Go on a one month "No-Buy"...Only purchase food, gasoline, and necessary household/hygiene items. 
 
Were booking our NYC trip on July 1st, and I want to pay for the whole thing with cash (There ya go Dave Ramsey!), I don't want to dip into my savings at all, so I'm going to free up the 1k (almost) from my July checks! That means...no shoes, makeup, purses, Target trips, Starbucks, Eating out (unless I'm not payin' ;)), basically cutting out anything that isn't necessity! This should be interesting, going from shopaholic, to a 31 day no buy! The girls at Sephora and MAC will probably miss my face...lol...jk...no really, they'll be totally confused! See ya in August gals! :) I'll definitely keep you updated!

Yikes, good luck!!! I REALLY REALLY need to do this. I think I will try starting after my birthday. I have school loans about to kick in the end of this month and I am not prepared AT ALL.
