…wish me luck!
^^^ delicious yogurt, dress shopping, flowers for ME!
hearts and layers and boots, packing, extra caramel and whipped cream, please ^^^
so… the bet…
i am not allowed to shop until FEBRUARY 14, 2013!
why valentine’s day, you might ask?
no reason in particular.
it was the first concrete date that came to mind and is far away, but not too far.
i have a problem.
i shop, and i shop too often.
working downtown has proved detrimental to my savings account.
and so, it is time for a change.
sticking to a budget is impossible (for me).
therefore, i am cutting out my frivolous hobby and the bulk of my spending completely.
absolutely no shopping for me for the next 23 days.
realistically, that is not long at all.
psychologically, it is an eternity.
what am i going to wear?
i despise the majority of my closet.
however, i am determined to win. i know i can do this.
and you will be my support system/know the truth at all times.
if i succeed at not shopping for 23 days,
i am purchasing the most gorgeous magenta moccasins in honor of valentine’s day.
if i lose?
no shopping until my birthday – which is two months away!
now that would be a feat…
the bet was placed yesterday (and as i bought mittens and a necklace on my lunch break), today marks my first official day.
and you know what? no shopping!
i spent my lunch break reading as opposed to meandering through the stores downtown.
this is going to be good for me.
wish me luck!
