It's the FIRST of JUNE tomorrow.
I just want to give you a moment to let that sink in
Because if you're anything like me, you're probably still wondering what happened to April; let alone May.
But this post isn't about time - whether fast or slow.
It's about me setting a challenge for myself. And the beginning of a new month and the start of a new season seems an apt time to give it a shot.
Let me start with saying - I don't think this will be easy by any means. But I am going to see how it goes.
If it works - Good for me!
If it doesn't quite happen - well, that's OK too.
No new purchases for a month.
I know it's not a new idea. Infact, there's a website dedicated to the concept.
But it's new for me.
I once came across a blogger who did this for a YEAR.
To her I say - Congratulations!
But to you, I say - For me that would be absolutely IMPOSSIBLE.
So the time frame is a month.

Not only is this true.. But it's amusing to me too since I work in advertising...!!!
But the light bulb moment for me was looking in my beautiful bowl from Brown Button Trading and noticing that it had somehow become a place for my receipts to live.
And my, were there a lot of receipts in that bowl!
|Keeping your receipts : Good idea or fodder for that post-shopping spree guilt?!|
So at the end of June this bowl should be empty and my bank account should look happier.
Oh, and just incase you're wondering - Food is not included in my challenge.
(Hey - it's my challenge, so I get to make the rules!)
By purchases I purely mean "stuff I could live without" and food just doesn't make that list.
I suppose it's lucky that I bought a new winter blanket last week huh?!
Wish me luck or play along at home!
