A woman named Michelle McGagh in London, England made a New Year's resolution last year to not buy ANYTHING in 2016.
The only things she spent money on were her mortgage, bills, insurance,and charity donations, which were about $2,300 a month. Then she gave herself a budget for food and toiletries of $43 a week . . . or about $6 a day.
She canceled things like Netflix and her gym membership. And, quote, "It meant no [movies], no nights at the bar, no carryout or restaurant meals, no new clothes, no vacations, not even a Kit Kat from the grocery store. And no [Starbucks]." So how much money did she save last year? $37,000
