Some Quotes for the Day are not managing an inconvience, you are raising a human being. - Kittie Franly

Dear God,
    Thanks for this beautiful life and forgive me if I don't love it enough.

Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Use what talents you posses. The woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best.

Love doesn't make the world go round, love is what makes the ride worthwhile. -Elizabeth Browning

I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears. Psalm 34:4

Shopping Fast

OK, so today it starts. I'm going on a shopping fast until the end of the month.
My friend Leslie did this a little while back and I have really felt like I am seriously addicted to buying STUFF!
Stuff I don't need, stuff I think I need that I really don't, and stuff that eventually runs out and I need to buy more of it. Groceries, gas, and the essential "girl" items are not included in this fast for obvious reasons.

Either way. I spend too much money on crap I don't need. SO, I'm writing down all the "stuff" that I want to buy and I'm not going to buy it just to see how much money I can save myself if I just had better control over my spending. I don't have a all. We pay our bills and spend whatever money is left over on "stuff."

So here goes.

Today I wanted to buy:

album on iTunes cost: $9.99
lunch at El Torreros cost: around $15 usually

I'm determined to save money. I have got to take on this demon by the horns and get it under control. Wish me luck.
