After perusing through Lady Steed's blog this evening, I found myself somewhat inspired by her Month of Abject Poverty and have decided to try it for myself. Wish me luck. I tend to make purchases on impulse far too often for my own good. Just take a look at the bag I brought home from Target last Friday (in my defense, they had this cool picnic blanket tote on sale as well as this CD that I absolutely love.)
Items allowed: Bread Milk Peanut butter Tuna Fish Juice Snack item on TTH from the vending machine's in the dungeon Crackers Water Gasoline 1 type of chips every 2 weeks
I have enough mac and cheese and top romon to last me the rest of the semester probably.
Banned items: Everything else, especially CDs, DVDs, books, chocolate bunnies, orchids, shoes, clothes (unless it's purchased with my gift card) and outside entertainment.
P.S. I am allowed to use my plethora of quarters to wash my car should it need a bath.
Every week if not every day that I post I will try to make an update. If I fail, then I'm in big trouble. The Easter Bunny keeps telling me to stop buying things, and so does the Birthday... umm... Person... Thing.
On another note, I'm addicted to Minesweeper.
