Spending Diet

Hi, my name is Stephanie and I am an addict. My addiction is my son, Hunter's fault. I LOVE to by anything that has anything to do with him it, he can play with it, etc). So... don't worry, I know it's not really his fault. I also love to buy myself things and gifts for other people.

I am cutting back and am officially on a spending diet through the end of September. This means no purchases at Baby Gap, Stride Rite, Gymboree, Lululemon, Williams Sonoma, etc. The list can go on and on. I am staying away from the mall!!!

Looking forward through September, there are a few things that are not critical, but I will not give up:
1) Hair colored and cut
2) The Little Gym tuition for the Fall
3) Decorations, food, etc. for Hunter's 1st Birthday Party

Any suggestions on keeping myself on track with this goal?

  1. I am right there with you Steph!! I am an addict as well. It's pretty hard to say no when I stare at it all day!!

    I put myself on a budget of a $ amount to spend a week on things that I wanted.. coffee, stuff for Cole ect, or things like the list above. It helped and made you really focus on the things they need/want!! Plus you can save so much more!!
