A Halloween Treat...

for Jaclyn!


This cute, cute Halloween bag is going to Jaclyn's daughter. Jaclyn was number 14, as chosen by Random Generator and I am delighted to send it out for trick or treat fun. Congratulations to Jaclyn!

Update on No Spending October. Despite many temptations -- I don't think I've ever gotten so many inducements to buy in my email inbox -- I have only spent $6.31 this month on "stuff." My stuff is two Halloween cards and they will be leaving my apartment in the next day, so technically they don't count as stuff. I've been debating the purchase of a gel mat for my kitchen -- great sale! -- but as I write this I realize that though it's a great sale, there are other great sales yet to come. I've only got 14 more days and surely I can temper my enthusiasm for "stuff," however useful, for two weeks. 

It was another gorgeous October day and so enjoyed a walk at lunch and walking home from the subway tonight. My walking is so much better -- thankfully! -- and I'm able to do four or five blocks without any problems. This feels like the best gift ever!

Wishes to all for a bright and sunny Thursday!

My daughter loves her gel mat in front of her sink. So wait two weeks like you have decided and then you can purpose it and be thankful in November that you have legs and feet to stand on it! Leave it to your friends to help you rationalize and wear down your resolve. Uh-oh - -- I don't sound like a supportive friend . . . . .

The winner will adore having the bag, and I am glad to hear you are walking more comfortably.
I can't imagine not spending money for a month. I do love me a bargain and wouldn't want to pass one up.
Tell us what you learned when the month is up.

What a cute Halloween bag! So glad you have done so well on your spending and your walking. I splurged and got some good smelling candles here at my house. My supply was depleted. Hope your Thursday is a wonderful one!
