We Have a Winner!


First, I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to all of your who participated in the First Annual January Money Diet. It was gratifying to hear from so many fellow ‘dieters,’ and our collective month-long break from nonessential spending was a very positive way to begin 2010. I’d also like to thank our generous guest posters who shared their thoughts during January:  Lynn from Viggies Veggies, Juddie from Flightless Boyds, Mary Beth from Dwelling Space, Diane from 30 Days to Grace and Shannon from Homestead on Earth. Hugs to all of you!

Random.org helped us with the prize drawing for the Urban Homesteader gift basket, and the lucky winner is TexMomof5. Congratulations – I bet a mom of five can use a gift basket! I’m sending virtual high-fives to all of you who participated in this year’s challenge, and I wish you all the best in your ongoing efforts to live simpler and more sustainably. You inspire me every day.


P.S. Plans are already underway for the bigger, better 2nd Annual January Money Diet in 2011. Watch for details!
