This post might warm the cockles of weese's heart. I did a little blog hopping yesterday and from a link from a link, I came across Chris, who is linked to the right as No Sale. I am a bit inspired by her resolve that her family of nine will not buy this year outside necessities.
EB and I have over the course of the last year, certainly managed to reel it in a little with the spending. But, it needs to be said. We. Like. To. Shop. Okay, so I like to shop way more than eb, but she likes to indulge me and I in turn, like to indulge her.
We won't say we will not shop, because that is just asking for a breakdown of resolve. I think we are mostly committed to this as in 95%. Necessities will be scrutinized in a way that brings us back to really evaluating if something is a want or a need. I am on the yarn bandwagon excepting when we travel but will only get yarn that is not available otherwise.
I might have more to say about this, but work is calling.
