Full disclosure: I put a deposit down on a Nintendo DSi which is due to come out this week. I have been wanting one for awhile and am looking forward to getting it. I have to admit that I don't feel as comfortable as I used to about spending that amount of money. I don't think it will be a regrettable purchase. It's just a 'big' one now, whereas before I probably would not have thought twice. Interesting.
A small victory for myself: I was able to save enough money over the past few months that I paid off the balance on my computer saving over $300 in finance charges. I am looking forward to my savings account going back up now.
Thinking ahead: Joslyn had some good ideas last week about re-entry. I think staying out of stores will be at the top of my list. I am sure that I do more mindless shopping in stores than I do online. Even beyond just the shopping, I have just recently started thinking about my lifestyle overall and if there are things that I have convinced myself that I need but really don't. I don't live lavishly by any means, but now might be a good time to reevaluate.
