Cleveland has been and will continue to be in a snow/cold weather lock down for the next week. It hasn’t been above 25 degrees and the snow seems to be never ending. Personally, I love the snow. I don’t even mind driving in it.
So I am starting my new year with a little resolution. Actually, I have several resolutions, but I am too embarrassed to share them all so I will just share one for right now.
I am resolving to go on a shopping freeze for the next three months. That means clothes, cheap DVDs in the 3 for $20 bin at Blockbuster, and most important, impulse buys. That doesn’t mean, however, gifts. I just bought my sisters their birthday presents today and had to resist buying myself a $10 dress just for the sake of the price.
That also doesn’t mean the bridesmaid dress that I will be buying for my sister’s wedding this spring. So nothing that would be purchased out of necessity.
I can give a couple reasons for doing this, but mostly this decision has as little precedence as most things I just happen to decide to do. I guess you can call me impulsive by nature, which is one of the reasons to give this a try: the ability to exhibit some self control. Another reason is to try to save money. And lastly, I hope to make better decisions about the things I purchase, which goes along with that whole self control thing.
Wish me luck! Good luck with your resolutions!
