Shopping Ban – Winter 2016 Update – Day 41

I super suck at not buying take-out, fast food, or restaurant food. In 41 days, I’ve “gone out” 9 times, totaling $119.75.

Hmm. I actually thought that those numbers were going to be a lot higher. That’s not bad. All right! Go me! I’m going to go out to Taco Bell for dinner to celebrate!

No, I’m not.

Not to celebrate. But I’m still planning to get Taco Bell for dinner. (It was Andrew’s idea. He’s smart — a chemical engineer. Who am I to argue to with that?)

So it isn’t over yet, but I’m learning some things.

  1. I don’t get take-out quite as often as I thought. And when I do, I don’t spend quite as much as I thought. However, I am making much more of an effort than I have in the past so it must be helping.
  2. I need another pair of jeans. At least one. I’m down to just one now, which is all well and good for some people, but I don’t really like going out with spit-up on my pants.
  3. I need a new pair of sneakers. I’ll post about that later.

Only 12 days to go! It’s going to be hard. I really want some new shoes.
