Day 2

Made it through a Target run without spending anything on myself:)

making another go at it

Last summer I made a go at not purchasing any new things for myself. Which I failed at. I did last about a month. I was going for 3 months. All summer. I'm human, it happens.

It has come to my attention that others in my life feel I spend hundreds on myself.
So as of today I'm making another go at it. For proof, not only to them, but for myself. Just to see. The thought of quitting cold turkey is appealing, however I know quitting cold turkey with anything is a lot harder. So I'm going to try to step down. Do I spend hundreds a week or month on myself..... NO! But I do pick up a shirt at Target, or my quick trip to the craft store for one thing, ends up being more then one thing.

Rules are as before but with a bit more give in the beginning. I'm going to allot a dollar amount for myself a week, $10.00. $40.00 a month. Then the next month I'll take $10.00 off, and so on. I'm just going to take it a month at a time. Baby steps. After all, I don't want to set myself up to fail.

Keep up with me if you want, or give it a go yourself. I mean how hard can it be:) LOL!

Spring is here. Time for renewing. Our family has had a lot of new changes this past year. Life has been so busy. I'm looking forward to getting back to crafting.
