Every so often I realize that I've been spending too much. As a result I take a month (although the first time was 40 days) and 'fast' on spending. It's not easy, but it's quite helpful in many ways. Each time I've done this I have actually made between 50 and 200 dollars. Combine that with the money I didn't spend, and the fact that I reformed my spending, it can have a big impact financially.

Unless otherwise indicated you can't spend any expected income.
NO spending of already existing money in your possession
The only exception to this is spare change
If you have any bills, you can pay them.
If you have any thing owed to you, you can call it in
You can sell get money by getting rid of things in your home
You can spend money that is refunded to you in that month
Anything that you sell or get refunded must be spent after you get the money back.
So if you submit a reimbursement for medical expenses, or sell something online, you can't spend money in anticipation of getting it. If you submit it and you don't get anything sent to you that month... tough noogies. If you find out someone owes you money, you have to wait until they hand it to you.
Gambling is allowed with any eligible money (but I don't recommend that)
You can consume anything that you already have
You can barter
In the end you can potentially.

Day 17: Entertaining knight
Today was rather dull. The usual food plus Sake house for lunch. Sometime later in the afternoon I was talking to someone about clearing out their cookies. Needless to say it made me want cookies. So I walked down to the snack machines and got a Twix even though they cost a buck. Kos told me about a web series called The Guild. It's a comedy about a group of people that play together in an online role playing game. When I got home I watched all the episodes of that. It was pretty fun. I lacked the motivation to do anything more interesting.
