I decided to shake things up a bit in 2019. Not make year-long resolutions but break the year down into goals or challenges.
Last month was self-care. Just slow down. I decided one way to do with was to use up bath products I have had in drawers for a while. This is me usually “Open drawer see products. Oh yeah should use that. Not today. No time.” Repeat next time I open the drawer.
I gave myself a facial. I opened the “Kiss My Face” product thinking it was a facial scrub or mask but it is a cleanser. Now in shower. Also have had a few soaks. I tried to accomplished one thing a week. Doesn’t sound like much but big for me.
This month I want to concentrate on not spending. I debated doing this one in January but thought no and did self-care. December was expensive with few unexpected purchases (over the range microwave being one). Oh yeah and Christmas.
I’m not a clothes or shoe shopper. So I don’t think this will be a problem. My restraint will be needed on not purchasing stationery and craft supplies. I’m thinking to fill this void I will use up some craft supplies on hand. That will give me some focus. If your thinking won’t books be a problem – no I am an avid library going.
Is there something besides clothes and shoes that you find hard not to purchase? I would love to hear what pulls when at the shops!
You can always start now!
