Um....about that spending fast
Yeah....this month, the spending fast has been kind of like that.
The "spending fast" (and yes, I feel like I have to put quotations around it) has made me aware of my spending habits and what I buy. It has made changes in the way I spend money. In that way the exercise has been really worthwhile. But, what I found is that I'm unwilling to not buy something when it is supporting a change I want to make in my life...like the composter, the produce bags, or the meditation cushion I bought this month. With that said, I also know that I also often buy these types of items and they don't work out the way I thought they would, so they end up at Goodwill.
It is with a good bit of chagrin that I declare an end to the boldly proclaimed spending fast. What I started with much enthusiasm in January is now defunct.
Tsk, tsk, tsk...
