Wow, what a great response to last night’s post about my budget experiment! It seems a lot of us are struggling with the same compulsions to shop-til-we-drop, and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your words of support and encouragement. It’s always a little intimidating to open up with such personal issues in this space, but I told myself that if it resonated with just one of you and sparked a “hey, I’m dealing with that, too!,” it would be completely worth it. So I’m really glad to read your comments and see that many of you related to my situation.
I’m looking forward to sharing this little journey with all of you over the next several months, and if anyone would like to join in the challenge and needs some support along the way, I’m happy to lend an ear. It’s always easier to take on a diet with a buddy, and spending diets are no different.
In other news, after [not so] patiently waiting for what seems like an eternity, we’ve finally gotten a tiny taste of fall crispness in the air down here! It’s not exactly boots and scarves weather, but I can get away with a sweater without suffering heat stroke. I’ll take what I can get!
