I've got January in the bag as a shoppingless month. Thank goodness, as I'm noticing my biweekly budget is not quite cutting it. The bill stuff that comes out around the first of the month is about $400 more than my paycheque. Not much of a Payday! thrill with that scenario. I guess I'll have to go back to the drawing board. I may need to tinker with my allowance and savings. Blah blah blah.
But, regardless of this sobering situation, I have managed my first month without buying anything new, and that feels very nice. So I'll just focus on enjoying what's going well for a breath.
