Ask the Readers: Have You Ever Done a Spending Freeze?

Editor's Note: Congratulations to Adeline, Susan, and Jay for winning this week's contest!

A spending freeze is a commitment to not spend money on anything that isn't necessary to your survival for a predetermined amount of time — usually a day, a week, or a month. Besides the obvious savings, a spending freeze can also help you rethink your spending habits and gain perspective on what you really need in your life.
