(1) I almost bought a good gossipy magazine sharing who wears it best and look who is dating who and all the other typical hollywood gossip.
(2) When buying Lola's dog food I perused the dog toy area thinking Lola would enjoy a new squeeker or puppy football.
Obviously Lola didn't need a new toy, but I really had to think about the magazine....hmmm, I asked myself, "Self, is this magazine consumable? Necessary for my well being?" No, not really. All in all, I feel that if you don't go into stores with new things, it is very likely that you will not buy anything new! As for the meals, I have 13 down and 136 to go! We have eaten a few winners and a few never doing againers. Have I saved money you may ask? No, I don't think I have, because I am grocery shopping on a regular basis....but I have to admit it is nice to have food in the fringe!! There is one confession I have to make to you all, in order to start February with a clean conscience. I have yet to buy a reusable coffee mug, so all of my coffee trips have made me a contributer to throwing valuable paper resources in the circular file (which were really only 2 or 3). Please forgive me......I promise to be good in February.
