I was kind of inspired this morning when I read Jenny's post
about her self-imposed spending freeze.
I think it might be time for me to give this a go.
I've been in kind of a dark place lately
and my bad old habits of soothing my savage breast
with retail "therapy" have been my go-to coping mechanism.
The good thing?
Most of the stuff I've bought has been a bargain -
big sales, big savings
but it's still a bad habit
I don't need anymore clothes.
I don't need anymore anything.
And considering that I sometimes feel fluttery panic in my chest at all the "stuff" I own,
I think it's a healthy choice to opt out of acquiring more.
I know it's not the beginning of the month
but my spending freeze starts here and now.
(I really do have a huge stack to get through.)
(i only have one set of feet)
It's already making me feel jittery.
Like coming down off a sugar high.
But sometimes you have to go cold turkey
and I think this is just the thing
to do just that.
See you May 10!
(well - I'll see you before then, but you know, the update will be May 10.)
