Well, ladies, I must confess that I.am.struggling. with what I have up this year - senseless spending. Meaning, the only things I am buying are food and products that I already use. For example, it's perfectly acceptable for me to buy shampoo because I use that on a regular basis. It's ok to buy foundation/mascara/eyeliner if I run out since I use it everyday. What's NOT acceptable is buying more eyeshadow (because I have a lot) or nail polish (because I have plenty to choose from). This of course goes beyond makeup to include clothing, shoes, accessories - you get the picture.
In the short time that I have been doing this, I realized something.
I'd like to say that this experience is drawing me close to God, but really I'm just kicking myself every time I see something I want to buy. But I'm sticking with it and maybe every time I feel tempted I should say a prayer. Maybe that will help me, but it's so hard when I want to buy:
Rose Rings from LizHutnick on Etsy
Heritage Cardigans from Land's End Canvas
(One in every color preferably)
NARS blush in Orgasm
And really that's only scratching the surface. Oh Easter, please hurry up and get here quickly so that I can buy myself something from this list!
