{$0 budget projects}

Once a year my family and I spend a full month not spending any money on non-essentials...and by essentials I mean only fresh fruits and veggies, dairy product, etc. For 31 days I cannot step foot in a Dollar store, home decor store and craft store! I do not spent a dime on crafts, clothing and home decorating. At first when my husband and I challenged each other, I was terrified. What would I do? How could I post anything on my blog?  Well it is shocking how easy it was/is to do this! Here is a full summary of how it went last year.

I thought you might find it useful to have a summary page of all the items I create on my $0 budget.

My flat screen TV frame is not technically included in my $0 spending month because I had purchased the materials a couple of months in advance anticipating making it...so I don't think it fits but I will show it to you in case you missed it.


  1. I found you through Pinterest. You are so talented. Please keep posting these great ideas!

  2. what a great inspiration for me! i also found you through Pinterest and added a couple of pins of my own :-).

  3. i too am on pinterest. It would be a delight to open the credit card bill and see $0.00 :)

  4. I'm with Anonymous #3. Ir would be great to have a 0.00 credit card bill. Good projects.

  5. wow i am only 12 and i dont have to raise a family but i would love to help my mom save some money and try some of these fun and cheap ideas!!

    1. Such a lovely young lady! Good idea!

  6. what a great idea to do a $0 budget month! I think it would be fun just to challenge myself!

  8. I just found you through a friend on Pinterest! Great, great, GREAT ideas!

  9. Some neat ideas. But obviously you must have a lot of supplies already on hand to do these at $0.00. I would have to buy the paints and papers and frames.

  10. sadly, I would not be able to make most of these for free :( my craft supply is very limited

    1. Look at the clearance all year. Also Hobby Lobby has great coupons. And no security breach:)
