I’m on week 2 of the January No Spend Challenge, where for the month of January I’m trying to only shop for the essentials and nothing else. For the rules of the challenge, check out this post.
I’m happy to report that for week 2, I did not shop for anything that was non-essential. However, I have noticed that my desire to shop, has increased quite a bit. It’s the middle of January, and my area is in the heart of the winter season, which means it is also the middle of sweater weather, my favorite time of year. With the stores clearing out their winter collections, sweaters are on sale, sometimes at deep, deep discounts, which makes resisting the urge to shop, that much harder to do.
Thankfully, I have a quick and easy way to stop this urge before it can manifest and wreck my participation in the no spend challenge.
What did I do?
