Decluttering and spending update: I achieved my goal of decluttering 100 items in February and am well on my way to making the same goal for March. I have 25 items to divest in the next nine days and I feel confident I will get there. The medicine chest is on my list for this weekend and my closet. I need to figure out what I can wear to work!
My label for March was Thoughtful Spending March. I knew that there would things I would buy on vacation and I did. The sole of my right sneaker -- definite necessities -- was peeling away from the rest of the shoe and I replaced them during the trip. I also left the old pair in Arizona. I bought a t-shirt, underwear and a new weekend tote bag. During my bathroom decluttering I found my sunscreen was outdated and bought a new tube, again not a splurge. I bought a very modest array of gifts -- for one birthday and the office -- and treated myself to a silver necklace and earrings. I did make two splurge purchases, a picture frame ($11.00) that I fell in love with, and a sweet plaque that says "Faith ($3.99).
Now that I'm home again, I have kept to thoughtful spending. I definitely need a few new summer shirts and a pair of shoes for work. I also need a pair of white capris, but that's the topic of a post to come.
Thanks to all who visited and prayed for those in Toulouse. Much, much appreciated!
Wishes for a sweet, sweet Thursday!
