One challenge a week

Hi All! It's been a long time since I've been here, but I need to get back into the frugal mindset. ESPECIALLY now that we've had to tackle some home projects that of course end up turning into more money than originally planned. Especially when our house was built in 95 during the height of the "throw 'em up quickly and who cares if they are built correctly" phase... then declare bankrupcy so I don't even get to go down to their offices and scream and yell at anyone... but I digress :)
SO! We have to get as close to bare bones as we can get at least until the end of the year. DH and I decided we'd try to make this a bit fun by issuing ourselves a challenge each week. (Our attention spans just can't handle a month, we end up screwing up and giving up).
I'm hoping you can help me out with some weekly ideas. We came up with: grocery exile, hanging our clothes dry, no misc. spending, me working a few extra hours.
I know that you all will have more ideas for me.
