  1. Woo hoo! Last day! It has felt great not to spend any money. I saved a bunch of money over the last ten days and I rekindled my love of cooking. I am going to try and personally stretch the challenge until Friday! 🙂

  2. Day 10 tip from Hank the talking piggy bank: NEVER GIVE UP!

    Congrats to everyone who took this challenge and succeeded…honestly we are all winners already because of the money we have saved the past 10 days! Whenever the struggle against debt feels like it’s too much, get on the internet and find a debt blog or article remember that there are a lot of people out there fighting the same fight. Read around through the archives and learn some new things – and perhaps get inspired to keep going, no matter what. I am proud that we were able to accomplish not spending a dime for over a week (other than auto withdraws and bills) and hope to continue to the trend indefinitely, especially until all of our minor debts are paid off! I am glad today is about over though because I am ready for some fresh produce! Aldi better watch out tomorrow cause this lady has a serious craving for fresh fruit!

  3. Thank you very much for doing this challenge. I will not say I dont want to win the money becuase of course who wouldn’t, but having the challenge to do the spending freeze and seeing how much money can be saved was a wonderful experience for my husband and myself. Thank you very for doing this.

  4. it’s the last day the chips are definitely off my shoulders lol.Thanks to missouri credit union and every person that made comment and contributed to 10day freeze.

    This picture is a symbol of how I save money and meet with friends my friends save money and get together meet each year for a vacation. We get together and meet up in Kirksville, Mo to ride in my black monster truck. Missouri Credit Union and the ten day freeze thanks and who ever read this post. I been through 5 car wrecks I wasnt at fault and successfully beat chemo treatment just blessed to be here to right this post. God bless all and congrats to the winner.

  5. Ten thoughts on spending freeze
    Thought 1) Who ever is crowned the winner wish them luck and it pays off past ten days
    2) ten day wow it’s over a lot of people different post I read
    3) hoping they have more challenges to encourage missouri customers who have a account to keep saving and try to play to win
    4)nothing I do different if we had another challenge or more days on a freeze.
    5) Day 10 I wonder if I qualify on top 10 if there was a lot of people try the 10 day freeze
    6) I will tell my friend and family if I won on Feb 11 and its the last day of 10 day freeze.
    7) who ever came up with this idea and question did a incredible job.
    8) I wonder if there was a lot people that try 10 day freeze didn’t make it past day 5 or 9.
    9) day 1 through 8 is the worst feeling during a challenge still waiting for the contest to come to end
    10) last two day of competition is easy its like a walk in the park, piece of cake. Finish line always the best during this challenge some people can go back to there every day life.
