Okay really I need some kind of internal dialogue to have with myself so i can stop spending 6-8 dollars a day on mocha lattes. I have decided to partake in the Oct. No spend challenge and obviously a mocha latte would be considered unnecessary spending. While i have given up so many other things so easily (no cable, no video rentals, no cell phone, we don't go out on "dates" so no babysitter or movie theater spending, no longer do beautifying things like nails, expensive salons, etc. etc. etc.) I just can't deny myself some mocha latte goodness. I think the intense daily craving also comes from breastfeeding my 13 month old. I eat like a teenage boy these days and am always craving something sweet (i'm also struggling to maintain weight...as in i am losing it too fast). Anyway, sorry so long but if you have any tactics that help you stop spending money on something delicious please help!
