I admit Defeat

I admit defeat. I give up after a month. I think I need a bit more baby steps.

still going

I'm still going good with my challenge. It's been hard. I didn't realize how often I just pick things up here and there.

day, not sure!

I'm not sure what day I'm on. I did slip up and buy a purse, and a shirt. However, I was on vacation. The shirt was a need. I didn't pack properly ( which never happens) My husband and I went to Grand Haven for a couple of days. Day one, we went for a walk down the board walk. A very long walk. It was going to be a nice low 80, and was over 90. So I was a soaking wet mess by the time we got back to our friends house. So I bought a tee shirt. Then my wonderful bag is a Vera Bradley, that I found like new for only$35.00. Rick did gently remind me of the challenge to myself, and I swore purses were not included. Yeah, I reread my post, it was.

still going

My challenge is still going strong. I've put aside over $100.00 in scrap non purchases. That just paid for my Aerosmith concert tickets. My first concert ever. How sad is that?! I'm 3........ something. And have never been to a concert.

Day 7

I'm one week down. It's been hard not spending. Especially yesterday when the kids were so bad I actually cried:( Is it to much to ask for 1 good hour? I was at Home Depot, originally taking back a screen door, but then buying paint and stain, oh and a few plants. My husband just built a mini privacy fence and added a ton of landscaping area. So I'm in the flower area and all of a sudden I hear screaming and one of the kids is on the ground with the other one hitting him. Then about an isle over I have another child crying because his brother is calling him stupid. I was so embarrassed. They get into huge trouble for acting that way. It's not like I let them do whatever, whenever. The punishment is still going into today!Sigh:( So all that to say, I think I buy when I'm stressed, then justify it by saying I deserve to buy because I had such a long day. With 3 boys and a hubby, when am I not stressed!? LOL! I'm still going strong though.

Day 4

I had yet to tell anyone but my hubby and the blogging world of my new venture. So when my girlfriend emailed me with her order for bella and wanted to know if she was ordering or if I was. LOL! How how well she knows me. I was quite proud of myself when I still didn't give in. Can't wait till that discount is over. It's taunting me! LOL:)
