In case this is your first time reading The Dollar Diet blog, my family and I are on a quest to go the entire month of February without spending any money. No kidding.

It's less than four hours until kickoff and preparations for our Super Bowl XLV "party" have begun.
(Just because we're not spending any money this month doesn't mean we won't be having fun.)

She's got big plans to go wild with a tube of red icing she found in the pantry.
No pizza and wings take-out on our frugal menu!
During the game, I'll be sipping a glass of wine, watching the commercials and keeping a look-out for any wardrobe malfunctions or other surprises during half-time.

Simple food made from my pantry stash, good company and great football (we hope).
It won't be fancy. But it should be fun, in our frugal sort of way.
