Now, in all honestly, I'm being pretty lenient on what I allow myself to buy. For example, on Sunday I was at a pool/grill/fireworks party at my friends' place. To the best of my knowledge, they are not coffee drinkers. I have an addiction. So picking up a couple bottled Frappucinos was necessary - one for the afternoon and one for the following morning since we crashed in their guest room.
Sidebar: WHY does Starbucks insist on putting sweeteners in their Frappucinos? Don't they realize some of us like coffee + milk or cream and NO sweeteners? I hate that I consumed the empty calories and I didn't even want them.
The biggest sign that I'm actually sticking to this no-frivolous-spending thing? I went to Target the other day and DIDN'T BUY ANYTHING. Not one thing. I went in looking for the following:
- Navy blue camisole sports bra, to wear under a bathing suit cover-up worn as a dress. Didn't have navy blue.
- High intensity sports bra. They didn't carry my size. (I even checked their web site - nope.)
- Leave-in conditioner. Didn't have anything that sounded like what I wanted.
Anyway, stay tuned for more super exciting posts about all the things I'm not buying. Also I'm burying this at the end of the post intentionally: The reason I'm doing this is because we've decided to move in with my parents. If we suck it up for a year or so with them, we should be able to pay off all of our credit cards and perhaps save up a down payment for a house. I figure more frivolous spending = more time living at my parents' house. And I certainly don't want that.
