Starting today I am on Spending Hiatus #2. This time around I am not following anyone like I did last time. I am trying it out on my own. We will see how that works. If any of you did not participate last time and want to this time feel free to do so and let me know so I can follow you. Either way I will do the same as last time and post each Monday (or Tuesday!) and re-cap.
So far I have a few exclusions such as two toilets, one refrigerator, paint and some other building supplies for our bedroom make-over.
I am committed to three months of this: June, July and August.
For those of you who may be unfamiliar with the spending hiatus exercise, I am committing to not buy anything that would be deemed non-essential for three months. For me non-essentials means clothing and accessories, home and decorating items, specialty personal care items (it is amazing how much money I can spend in one trip to Walgreens), magazines that I don't already have a subscription to, books (thank goodness for the library), electronics and itunes music. This list is not exhaustive and I think it would be different for everyone.
Like last time I am going to use the next three months to do some more de-cluttering and organizing my two favorite activities.
Wish me luck.
