Starting today for the month of May, I’m going to try and not purchase anything except necessary things like food and toiletries. Not that this is some incredible feat of restraint, but I noticed that lately I have been purchasing more little things online than I really need. Amazon and other sites have it so easy to buy things that it just sort of crept up on me.
Anything I want to purchase, I’ll put on a wish list. I think it will be a fun exercise at the end of the month to see what’s on the list and hopefully try to be more mindful about little purchases in the future.
I swear I started this first thing this morning and no more than an hour later I was reading a blog post and caught myself looking at candles online! OMG. I’m back on track and I’ll check in next week to give an update.
If you want to do this with me, either post a comment or email me and we can help keep each other motivated.
