I went shopping over the weekend and didn’t purchase a thing (other than the $3.66 knob thingy I needed for the lawn mower)! I am pretty proud of myself. I didn’t really need anything but there are a few things I’d like to purchase in the future. So instead of just purchasing them I went window shopping for the average price. I am bargain shopping for cloth napkins and glass containers. I used to use paper towels as napkins, but since I eliminated my paper towel use I need to pick up some reusable napkins. The glass containers are for food storage, as I am trying to eliminate the use of plastic containers. Who needs chemicals leaching into my food when I throw leftovers in the microwave, not me!
I tried to stick with the kitchen section of each store but found myself wandering the aisles looking at all kinds of items I would have felt I “needed” in the past. I had no desire to spend money on any of it. They say it takes 28 days to kick-start a new habit. I’ve been writing this blog for more than 28 days.
I think I may have developed a new habit of not spending money for unnecessary items.
