It has been 5 days of my shopping ban, a little game my husband and I are playing to see if I can indeed last a month without buying anything frivolous. Already, I find myself smugly congratulating my ability to not shop for 5 WHOLE days, but yet also lamenting torture of the weeks ahead. I'm posting this publicly so I can be held accountable and keep everyone updated of my progress, but gosh darnit, you know there had better be a pretty good prize at the end of this contest! via Sharon Pakir
