Tomorrow begins a new month, a new opportunity. The irrepressible and always provocative Crunchy Chicken has announced another of her spending fasts. The full rules are on her website, but are pretty simple: don't buy anything all month. Essentials like (non-impulsive)food/food storage materials, medicine, required school supplies, gasoline, are exempt. Toilet paper is probably okay, but the inimitable Crunchy has her own ideas about THAT. No eating out. (I wonder if it still counts as 'spending' if someone else pays?) She will hear public confessions on her website every Sunday from those who fall on their face, so that they can dust themselves off and get back on the horse.
*Except that my sugar addiction is even more out of control. My sister says I'd be fine if I could learn to manage my diet as well as I manage my money, which just shows how bad it is!
