Almost Millions: Personal Finance For Freelancers, 1099ers, & The Self-Employed

Can you go two days each week without spending a single dollar?

Over on Reddit’s awesome (and invaluable) Personal Finance Subreddit, user Oax_Mike suggests not spending any money twice a week… just to see what happens:

It really forces you to pack your own lunch, make a pot of coffee at home and avoid all those little (and unnecessary) expenditures that add up over course of a month. As a bonus, by forcing yourself to forego the pack of gum, diet Coke and whatnot on your $0 days, you wind up cutting these things out naturally on the other days.

What do you think? Does this sound like a good idea?
