So far, it’s been pretty easy. But, I haven’t been looking at anything! I guess that is my key; I cannot go on to any web sites that offer shoes, clothing, jewelry–anything that I enjoy! I should probably even stay away from magazines. Many times I will make purchases based on pictures I see in magazines. They do, of course, list the stores very near all items.
So, for now, I am good. I am trying to stay strong. I think after Christmas I may struggle. Everything will be so deeply discounted, and that’s when my knees give out. The special prices drive me insane. So, maybe I will have to give up my day-after-Christmas shopping tradition! Now sure yet–that’s when I usually buy my wrapping paper and party favors for my girls’ birthday parties. Maybe I can establish a budget and still enjoy the day. We shall see.
