The Spending Strike

Sarah Baker, a long-time member of WIFE, along with her husband and children, took on the challenge of a month-long spending strike. They paid their mortgage, utilities, and insurance but cut out all other spending.

Keeping track of what they would have spent, the Bakers discovered they had saved nearly six hundred dollars that would otherwise have been wasted on nonessential purchases.

In addition to finding their bank balance growing, the Bakers also found new ways to bond as a family and to strengthen their faith. The spending strike opened their eyes to how they were spending their paychecks and new ways they could be saving.

Sarah’s path is an inspiration. Her book is available at
