No Spend September

Wednesday, September 02, 2015 Emily Childers 0 Comments

I really like to shop. I know. I'm one of those girls and it hurts me inside to admit it. Working from home can be an exercise in self control and one of my biggest distractions is checking my favorite sites for sales. It all starts to add up; $20 here and $50 there and all of sudden my credit card bill is out of control.

Outside of daily necessities (food, toilet paper, gas, etc.) I'm putting a moratorium on spending for the rest of September. This will be extra hard since we're going to Hawaii for a week and I won't be able to buy any mementos. I'm pretty good about avoiding souvenirs when I travel, but this is the first time I'll be drawing the line at zero purchases.

If you feel like you've been overspending, try and play along with me as I can use all of the camaraderie and support I can get. I've heard that it takes 30 days to create or break a habit, here's hoping that's true!
