This is going to be super-incredibly hard for me to do. I love online shopping. I get sucked in by sales emails every single day. In order to make good on my promise, I made the following list of things we can spend money on until April 5th:
JC's Crossfit membership & supplements
Necessary furniture for home: couch & bookcase
Easter gifts for the kids
Blog post items
Spring Break Camp
One trip with the kids to the movies
That's it. No clothes, no Starbucks, no Panera, no Target dollar spot, no movies every weekend. Nada! I'm serious here people! I made a big Target run this weekend and bought random stuff I probably won't use and that should last me until April. You see the problem is my house is full of "random things we don't use" such as clothes, toys, art supplies and food. We all need to learn to use what we have and play with the toys we already have. I know this will be tough on all of us but we do need it. Wish us luck!!
