Dawn sent me a link to a Yahoo video about a couple that took on the challenge of using only cash for one month.

What was the result? They lived with some inconveniences, but managed to cut their spending for the month by 24%. For them, that equaled $1,800. That’s quite a bit of money.
We are a lot like the Farhats. We rarely ever have cash on us. Sometimes I wonder if switching to a cash only system would save us money. But we haven’t tried it because cash can be harder to track and it’s easier to lose. I have been tempted to try it, though. Does anyone have a cash only success story to share?
Thanks Dawn for the tip!
