I'm sure if you've been reading my blog for a while, you know that once I set my mind to something it's pretty much done.. In 2011 I gave up buying shoes.. And I use to have a serious addiction to shopping for shoes.. That year taught me a lot about self discipline and needs/wants. And while I still admire a great shoe, I don't feel the need to go out and get every shoe that peaks my interest.
I think I tweeted at the end of 2012 that I was also going to forego buying any makeup in 2013. I haven't even had a desire to go to the MAC counter. While I follow a lot of beauty blogs, I haven't even been tempted to check out any of that new collections. Dare I say it's lost its appeal. And no that doesn't mean I don't take care of myself or fix my face up anymore. I just realize I have tons of makeup, lipsticks, etc. and I'm sure anything I need is already in my collection.
I received a gift card to MAC for my birthday.. And I'm going to save it til I run out of foundation and use it for that. Otherwise, I don't NEED anything.
Saturday I went to the mall to pick up a book. I usually order books via my kindle, but I had a gift card for Books A Million. They ended up not having what I wanted and I used the gift card to buy some toys for Kayden. While I was there I took a peak at some of the spring items for the boys. Children's Place has the cutest button downs and in both Kayden and Tyler's size.. I asked Tyler how he felt about him and Kayden having the same shirt for Easter. He told me he didn't care but he wanted to see the shirt before I bought it. LOL I guess he's getting an opinion now on clothing..
I had already thought of several options for myself for Easter that are in my closet. So I won't be buying myself a thing. And I'm really trying/hoping/planning to forego buying myself ANY clothing this year. We'll see if I can do it..
My goal/plan is to operate on a cash only basis this year. And also exercising delayed gratification and self discipline.. So far so good.. Wish me luck!
