I have enough.
This is my new mantra.
I have an addictive personality, and shopping is a weakness for me. But I’m getting better at not spending money. My biggest problem? The drug store. I have more hair-care products, and lotions, and perfumes than anyone I know. And I have guilt about it, which only makes it worse for me. So until I have used every last drop of every shampoo, conditioner, or funk-i-fier spray, I am not allowed to spend one penny more. Now, I had to break this rule to buy some special shampoo for the itchy scalp, but overall, it’s working pretty well.
In addition to curbing my spending, I have a HUGE pile of stuff to sell off. Stuff I’ve never used. I can think of three pairs of shoes, two pairs of jeans, a fancy dress, and a jacket or two that all have been in my cupboard for at least a year, if not more, and all still have their tags on. Maybe I should make a new goal out of this: sell that crap! I am not going to give it away, since I’ve never used it, I’ll sell it. And use the profits for something fun, like a holiday or something.
Yes, this plan is getting better all the time.
(now will I actually do it?? that remains to be seen….)
