    February Challenge-Are You Ready?

    It’s almost February and you know what that means at Budget Smart Girl? It’s challenge time. This year I tried to come up with something different. For our 2023 February challenge, it’s don’t buy it unless it’s on sale. Remember that we never buy anything that’s not a necessity. We evaluate a want versus a need.
