Who are our May birthdays in Buttercupland?
I love May. Winter is definitely over in New York City and the weather is usually warm and sunny. The humidity is yet to come and on a warm and dry night like tonight, it's difficult to imagine that in six weeks I may be standing on the a subway platform "glowing" in sweat.
Two quick updates...No Spending April was less than a success. Although I don't count paying for activities in my spending equation, paying a second time for my trip to Rochester went against my goal of thoughtful spending. I learned a valuable lesson, but it was expensive. My other purchase was $70.00 for my new phone. It's not a luxury, but it definitely wasn't planned. I still have to purchase my summer t-shirts, black capris and a pair of shoes. I have a budget of $150. set aside and have started shoe shopping.
My second update is about my decluttering. I aimed at discarding 100 things and only achieved 71 in April. I do have more space in my front closet and made real headway on two dresser drawers. I also have 15 less books on my shelves. My goals for May are to continue the 100 things project -- and to add the 29 from April, where I fell short of 100. Included in this were at least a dozen pens that no longer wrote. I can't imagine why I didn't do this sooner, but it feels great to know that every pen I pick up actually writes.
Wishes for a very merry month of May!
