spending hiatus, weekend 2

weekend #2 is coming to a close, and i think i've done pretty well so far. in the interest of total accountability, here are the non-food non-essentials that i have broken down and splurged on:

  • bust magazine ($5)
  • pack of tees at the driving range ($1)
  • boho magazine ($6)

it's pretty well documented on this blog that i love bust, so that's a near-essential. i broke down and bought the tees because i just wasn't in the mood to scavenge for them on the driving range. finally, i bought boho because the issue has a french theme, and i'm a sucker for anything french-themed, and it has some stuff in there that i want to make. all told, that's $12 of non-essential spending in 2 weeks. not too shabby.

a funny thing is happening: the longer i go without frivolous spending, the less i want to frivolously spend. instead, i have made some delicious food with friends, sewn a super-cute top, and spent some time just plain relaxing. not only that, but i can whip my debit card out for some groceries or brunch without worrying about whether or not i should be spending the money.
