I LOVE stories like this. Because everytime I get the urge to "organize" I have to catch myself because so often what I really want to do is go to Staples and spend money. It is nice to hear that happens to other people too. Glad you caught yourself and found a free solution at home. Good work, Melissel!
You are so right! I yearn for an organized home, and that so often seems to mean that I get carte blanche to spend money because being organized is important. And it is, but throwing more money at it is not the way to do it. Thanks
Oh mama, I'm very proud of you too!!! This is awesome. It's so hard to tell yourself 'You don't need that' when you've told yourself the opposite for so long. I did that the other day and was immensely proud of my efforts too. Since then, it's become easier to just say no. Good on you for prettying up those manila folders and keeping your hard earned cash in your pocket!
Thank you, but oh my goodness, I think you did better than I did! I think it's easier to say no to bringing something in than it is to actually go out bring stuff back to the stores. And then to come right home and apply that money to your credit card? Really well done
I forgot how helpful these threads can be!
