It is said that if you want to challenge yourself to accomplish something, tell people about it or better yet blog about it. It helps one to be accountable. Will a person quit so quickly if it means losing face in public?
So I am announcing it here.... I am taking the No Buy Challenge.
I will do monthly posts to update you all on my adventure. We are almost half way through January and I haven't made a purchase yet. No big sacrifice on my part though as I ordered the January Studio Calico kit at the end of December and placed an online order at my favourite store back East. Both of these packages have arrived. So at this point, I have what I have. :)
I am excited to see how my LO's look in 2013! I will likely be pulling out some vintage stuff and mixing it up! It will be fun to look at my scrappy room at the end of this year and see how much of a dent I have made. Best of all, I am hoping to feel that I have disciplined myself in some small way. I always want to appreciate everything that I own. As they say, "It is better to love everything that you have, rather than have everything you love." I know this will be a hard challenge for me but I am feeling up to it! ( No tiny Maya Road cameras for me ~ waaahhhhh) LOL
Anyone out there want to join me in this challenge? It can be a kind of scrap-addict support group?
I always remember what Ali Edwards wrote in an article years ago regarding excessive scrappy buying, "You have plenty of supplies to record all of your memories". This is very true. :)
