3 months down 5 to go!

One of my resolutions this year was to not buy anything for myself until my birthday. This is very hard for me because I would normally go out and bargain hunt if I needed new clothing items or anything else i wanted.
I have been trying so hard not to buy anything. Lance doesn't help out that much because he is the devil advocate and tries to convince me that I need that new pair of sunglasses or some new socks.
My hardest trial was when I walked into Forever21... (sooo not a good idea) There they were the cutest pair of retro 50 style heels I have ever seen. I should have fainted knowing that I couldn't have them. I walked over hoping they would be outrageously expensive and that would be a good enough reason to set them down, but no... no such luck, they were only $20... Stupid sale. it's like they knew I was coming. No two seconds later I bolted for the door. I couldn't just stand around knowing that I would end up buying something.

I have yet to be back since. Maybe on my birthday =)

I am shocked that anyone can pass up a great pair of shoes on sale. I think it's awesome that your blog is more updated than mine, I like to see what's going on. I wish I lived closer so I could visit. It seems like all my friends are down in Utah county. Your so funny, i liked the cat food story I could see it all happening so clearly. Where did LJ get a job? last I knew you guys were still looking.

I was trying to figure out your title and almost thought you were pregnant!! I was going to be in utter shock.

I'm still in shock. I never have money to buy things for myself, but every now and then I find a shirt on clearance at Target and buy it anyway. You have massive amount of willpower. Way to go!

You are stronger than me. I only made it 5 months. October-March (really it was only 4 and a half because I shopped halfway through March.)
