what a weekly thread...

about the things you didn't buy?

I wanted to purchase some new shoes today but didn't. I will eventually need them but I don't right now. So I'll sit tight...keep my eyes open as they or equivalent ones may go on sale...and only purchase when they are on sale!

Oh that tip worked about another tab!

I like this thread..listing what you don't buy. It goes right along with what i am not eating right now. I have now lost 15lbs and am feeling just fantastic.

If I am in town I have been going through the drive through so now with eating better I am not doing that so not buying fast food. I can't think that is bad for my wallet or waist line!

I have wanted 4 new chairs for my kitchen table and I have not bought those for 4 years now. They are all mis matched. I have been thinking about it more lately though. I have not allowed myself to look. We registered the motor cylcle this year and it needed a repair so we just don't have the funds. 

Have a great week everyone!

I have gained 5 lbs since going back to school and I really, really want to lose it (plus another 5!). I just spent my evening preparing food for tomm...when I should have been studying for a midterm. I just really don't feel it it :) Today, I totally blanked and forgot to take my son skating. D'oh! But that means no eating out today as we have gym, floor hockey and skating back to back and usually grab coffee or something on the go... gonna try not to buy any lattes this week (should help with wallet AND waist) Dee

I am trying to keep my focus on paying extra on our mortgage & saving for a mini weekend getaway, so I'm trying to stay away from shoes, bags & clothes...my major weaknesses.  Setting a goal & keeping it in front of you can make wonderful things happen.  Soon to be debt free including mortgage!!!

I am returning a pair of shorts and a couple tank tops I bought before the trip.  I just sort of started grabing, wanting to make sure I had enough and don't really need it all.

Just now I didn't buy a pair of boots. They were on a steep discount, but still, I resisted!

On the other hand, I ate luxuriously tonight. No, I didn't go out. I just ate some fancy stuff.
