Wish me luck!

OK, this weekend I started. Sophie told me about a book she'd read called Not Buying It. I started November 1st. I have no idea how this will go. Those who know me know that I am not really a person who likes to delay gratification. I'm more of the "live for the day" kind of shopper. This is going to be REALLY interesting.

I have modified this girl's plan a bit. I will buy food and I will buy gifts. I am going to try this out for November, January and February. I am just not sure I can make it through December without going out to a movie or buying myself a little present.

Who knows? I may change my mind and try it for 4 months. I have already had to resist the perfect picture frame at World Market on Saturday and a huge sale at Banana Republic last night.

Wish me luck!!

oh my.
good luck.
I already feel sad for you. :)
BUT, it'll be an interesting exercise... I've done it on a modified scale with food. "We ARE NOT buying aNyTHING at the grocery store until this freezer FULL of food is EMPTY!!"
But then, Harris Teeter would put Ore-Ide shoestring French Fries on BOGO, and I'd cave. ...

but why?

I'm trying hard not to buy Starbucks, does that count?

I know, it's just silly! I'm never gonna make it. Trust me, not going to Starbucks after leaving the poll at 6:10 AM was a HUGE SACRIFICE for me!!
