~I’m so confused this week I had Monday off of work and I forgot today was Wednesday sorry this was late!~
Ok I know that going a whole month with out buying anything non-essential may be a little daunting so how about a week? Can you commit to that? Think about it and let me know. If you can commit to just one week I promise it will be worth it, I have a few tricks up my sleeve. So here was my week:
~I bought 2 pairs of shoes, now was was a necessity…the dog at my work shoes. The other however was not…but it was on sale for only $8.00, I caved.
~I bought a pair of jeans, now these were iffy, I have jeans but I always seem to be running out. So that makes them a necessity right? Plus I got them on clearance only $14.79
~I also bought some candy, but hey I was on vacation.
This is the place mat and napkin set I did not buy at Kohl’s even thought it was on super sale.
Here is just one of the many garage sales I drove past without stopping and buying things I probably didn’t need…
~Remove temptation from your e-mail, unsubscribe to any store advertisements that don’t offer any coupons. For the ones with coupons for this month just delete them right away.
~Don’t go shopping if you don’t have too. I would not have bought the jeans or the second pair of shoes If I hasn’t gone out for the first pair…
~ Here is a hint from my friend Vee ” I think about the money I’d be spending rather than the item I’d be getting. Puts it into perspective…works for me anyway.”
~This one is from my Friend Holley “impose a waiting period on purchases. if you want something, wait like…a week…and if you are still as hotfired about having it in a week, then maybe it is something you need?
