In the month of July, I am going to make an effort to stop buying stuff that I don't "need." This will include all clothing items, make-up, "fluff" toiletries (for example, a new scent of shower gel when I have several perfectly good scents in my shower already), shoes, bags, accessories, books (of the printed variety...I have a gift card saved on my B&N account that I can use to purchase e-books if I care to, until the gift card is used up, at which point e-books will be out as well), DVDs, and CDs. I am also going to ban myself from buying fast food, which I have been doing on occasion on my way home from work. It's such a cop out, and I wouldn't have to do it if I kept the house full of easy-to-prepare foods for those occasions.
I may post updates on this project as the month progresses...and expect a recap at the end of the month! It's going to be an interesting experiment, but I know I can do it!
