This is an excellent example of a great Black Friday special deal!! http://www.wsaz.com/news/headlines/77633062.html
I decided I'd have a 'no shopping' day, but I wanted to make banana bread to save money by not buying something at Starbucks every morning. And I needed yogurt. so off to the chinese grocery store. Not a big deal, 2 apples, a dozen eggs and a container of 2% yogurt. At least I avoided the temptation to get a chocolate bar.
i've been trying to reduce clutter lately. calling it clutter doesn't seem accurate, it's just a matter of having more than I really need. I want to simplify - cleaning, planning, organizing. But there's almost a ratchet effect of purchasing, especially with clothing - I try it on, get tempted, buy it and there it is in my closet or dresser. And I can't just toss it if I don't wear it often. I feel like I should plan my outfits better to use more of my wardrobe but I tend to go back to the same easy familiar items.
