Spending Cleanse 2013

So it has come to this.

June Goals

1. No one needs any clothes. We just don’t. We’re good.
2. Tchotcke, extra “stuff” purchases of any kind are a no-no.
3. I will get my internet bill down. Oh yes. . . I will.
4. Entertainment purchases/expenses for this month are completely banned.
5. Eating out is also completely banned with a couple very slight, pre-planned outings.
6. The purchasing of extra, unneccessary and always unhealthy foodstuffs at the grocery store are also against the code.
7. Lowe’s & Home Depot trips: grounded.
8. No Chinese for me.

-I’ve learned that in my attempt to completely organize and declutter my house, coupled with curbing excessive spending, is that my past need to purchase and collect “stuff” is absolutely counterproductive to organizing a home. Not purchasing “stuff” and keeping a home organized are 100% connected. Read more of this fantastic post at Tidbits from the Tremaynes
