Sweet Success! Day one has come and gone with much success. It was easy enough to make it through the first day, and ironically enough someone even bought me lunch!
I can accept breakfast, lunch, or dinner when offered.
This doesn't mean that I always have to accept when offered, but it will allow me to on occasion without feeling guilty. I have read before that you should never refuse money, and for the purpose of this experiment food = money.
One thing I did today to help limit temptation was to unsubscribe from all the e-mails I receive soliciting daily sales and bargains. No more Rue La La or Gilt for this reformed shopper.
I love September and this was a great way to start the month. I was able to come home, make dinner, watch a movie that I have been meaning to watch for the past three weeks and blog about my new found passion for saving instead of spending :)
