The "don't spend a penny" challenge. Anyone want to join me?

I am currently 19 living with my dad about to start a new job sometime late next week or early week after. Possibly will have two jobs, don't know yet got interveiw on wednesday

Basically the idea of this challenge what I am doing (and you, if you want to join) is to not spend a single penny OR LOOK AT YOUR BANK BALANCE. For a period of time which you set yourself. Mine is november first.

Reason: Saving for my own house, but need to pay £1000 first before I can start. So not spending a penny in order to get that grand.

    So you do spend £20 on food? If you mean you don't spend any money apart from bills then fair enough - in fact I think there may already be a thread on that. If you mean you don't spend a single penny then I think you must be very lucky if that's possible for you and you don't have any bills to pay, but I doubt many others are in the same situation.
