    Try and get to read, 'The Moneyless Man' by Mark Boyle. It's a great book of his life, and he changed my life, helped me to minimise my life in all aspects.

    Good luck and I will be watching with interest! :T

    I am trying to supplement income and use money I have made by selling to pay off 1 credit card and use for groceries.
    I am using my local Facebook pages to sell as there are no fees/postage etc. Not sure what will happen when the larger items are all sold and I only have small money items.
    Good luck everyone!!

    If you are planning on doing this for a whole year it might take a bit of planning first? I recently got watching some interesting TEDx talks by people who decided to live without money (one for a year, and one managed it for 3 years!), but both people planned quite meticulously first, thinking about the possibilities and the challenges, etc.

    Good Luck.
    Thanks Rav ,I overspend way to much and always waste way to much food asd* is where i park my car each day but i try not to enter their front door .My desire for an empty house is what is really driving this on ,the saved money will be a bonus.

    hi dinc ,I probably have enough tat for a year ,however did think about scouring bootsales for stuff to sell on or viceversa pick up cheap stuff online to sell at bootsale . We have a localebayfinder thing here and becase its collection only you can pick up decent items at cheap prices you will need a decent boot though as tends to belarger items people dont want to post just a thought .

    Yes, he was one of the TED talks I was watching. I find him very inspirational.

    Well first two weeks in sold 2 items chest of drawers £70 and dress £10.00 .I started with a £300.00 as I easily go through £150.00 a week going to get organised for a boot sale next week .Doing really well moneywise I am trying just not to spend it I have plenty food in the cupboard and I have been literally just topping it up with the perishables .
    I am down on shopping considerably thats been the biggest saving so i'm still afloat but need to start selling lots .
