When Hattie Garlick was laid off from her newspaper job just five days before Christmas, she and her hubby had to re-evaluate their spending-
Even on their 2-year-old son!
So Hattie has decided to go minimalist, attempting to go an entire year without spending one unnecessary penny.
OK, obviously she can't spend NO money- the kid has to eat! And medicine can't count- this is about cutting unnecessary expenses!
So what are the rules to this whole no spending experiment?
