I do apologize for not staying on top of the updates, but I'm happy to report that I'm still frozen! In all honesty, it has not been that difficult. And it's really made me realize how much I do not need and how many unnecessary items I was buying.
For instance, last week before we had tons of family coming to visit, I usually would've had to have purchased at least one new item for the weekend to wear. Now really. How silly is that? I had just as great of a time without new clothes as I would've had with them. It's ridiculous when you take a step back and really think about it. My boyfriend, family, and friends love me (I'm assuming) all the same without any new clothes, shoes, and accessories, and that's what really matters.
You want to know what the one thing is that I've been dying to buy? Workout clothes. That's probably not what you expected to hear. I've started taking a couple of classes a week at Life in Synergy, and I would really like a new pair of yoga pants and a couple of new tank tops to rotate in to my workout gear. The only other thing I've kind of sort of wanted to buy is a fun scarf to wear in my hair. Random, right?
Obviously I wouldn't be breaking the bank by buying these few items, but I would be $100-$200 poorer if I purchased them. And then I'm sure you know about the ripple effect once you step into a store. There are suddenly TONS of items that you NEED to buy that you hadn't thought of before. So in all reality, it'd be more than $100-$200.
Anyhow, that's the spending freeze update. Only 1 month and 5 days to go! If you've been freezing too, how has it been going for you?
