2 hours to go and a rule change...

I am seriously so nervous about this project that I can't believe it! I had Ben buy me dinner out tonight because I wanted one last awesome meal. LOL They got the order wrong, though, so it was just an ok meal. *sigh*

I've been doing a lot of thinking, and I'm hoping this won't change many things about the project, but I have decided that I am not putting the gasoline restriction on myself. For one thing, 30 days on one tank of gas is a long time, even for someone who doesn't have a regular commute. If I'm going to be able to effectively utilize all my coupons, I have to be able to get to all the stores in my area. And selfishly, I want to be able to go visit my mama when my husband goes out of town for a full week. She misses this baby, and can't get off work anytime soon. So.

I'm still struggling over this decision, as if it totally negates my goal, but it really doesn't. And I'm still going to keep track of these things so I can discuss these things with you. And I'm still waiting to hear from you on some challenges that I can work towards! Hit me with your best shot! I'll try my best to achieve it, coupons at the ready :-D

Wish me luck...I think I'll need it!

I don't think you should restrict the gasoline anyway. It's part of car ownership, just like oil and tires. And, what if there is an emergency near the end of the month and you don't have gas? Nope, you need to keep the car gassed up. Just be as conservative with your driving as you can be, I figure.
