I am still here. When a stomache bug has gone through each of us in the house in the last 5 days, it is easy to not buy anything. The food issue is tougher for me though. My DH got my son a pizza today because I (the last to have the bug) still can't really stand to look at food. My DH for sure would bulk up on convienience food if he had the chance.
We have been sick for the last 6 weeks from a cold and now this thing, all I want to do is be outside and go to a park, makes it easier not to buy things.
I still can't really figure out my blog, how to get a link to it... when I do I will post it. I am really relieved by this Compact though, it takes a lot of pressure off for the holidays. I get soooo stressed out about shopping. I haven't been tepted to shop yet, but sometimes with me it comes in weird little ways. Oh the other day I was looking at magazines in line, one had a topic i felt like reading about, I almost put it in my basket. Then I said to myself "That is not in the Compact." So I guess I have wanted to buy something... thanks to the Compact I didn't.
