The latest craze sweeping Pinterest and the Internet at large is the 'no-spend weekend.'  Have you ever tried one? The idea, as you've probably guessed, is to avoid incurring expenses for a full forty-eight hours.  Instead of shopping and dining out, no-spend weekends encourage individuals and families to save money by trying different, lower-cost activities.  Ready to give one a shot? Here"s how…

  • Get prepared

Since you won't be able to have lunch at the mall or run to Target for late-night snacks, make sure to plan home-cooked meals for the weekend and grocery shop accordingly (don't forget the coffee grounds if you're a Starbucks regular!).  You'll also want to put gas in your car and pick up some sunscreen if you plan to spend time outside.

  •  Do something different!

Fill the weekend with fun activities you wouldn't try on a 'typical' weekend-- visit a new park, check out books at the library, go to a free concert or museum exhibit, call family members and friends to catch up.  You could even pull out that shoebox of receipts under your bed and get organised using NumReceipt.

  •     Keep it going

Remember that spending less one weekend is not an excuse to splurge the next!  Keep saving and improving your financial health by scheduling regular no-spend weekends, and use NumReceipt's online expense reporting to track your expense reduction progress.  Have fun and good luck!

"What the world really needs is more love and less paperwork." - Pearl Bailey

Irrespective of an amazing proposal or a life changing break up, life still goes on. One has to Let go…of all the could’ve and should’ve in emotional as well as practical sense.

We as humans tend to shower our loved ones with gifts. When it comes to that special person in our life, we really do not have a second thought and expenses seem nothing. We are ready to inscribe “all for him/her” in every penny. When the realization dawns that this person is not the right one, we contemplate our own actions and wonder how much money/time we have spent – “all for him/her”. But it is certainly worth taking the risk of falling in love all over again to eventually find the right one and then enjoy the relationship nurturing its beauty.

We would like to put forth a striking proposal for the D-Day, the 14th of February. The risk of falling in love is yours, and the responsibility of tracking your expenses this Valentine’s Day is ours! Never regret losing receipts or tracking your expenses. The right one always appreciates that you are in control of your expenses and NumReceipt can help you to be in control.
