Not Buying it for 2006

November 7th, 2006 at 09:57 am

I decided to review my not buying list for 2006 to see if Im sticking with it.
The list included:

clothes (excluding 1 pkg undies and socks)
make-up
haircuts
shoes
craft supplies (except yarn for GDs xmas blanket- need 4-5 more scans)
nice bath soap (will use existing supply)
books
magazines
perfume
purses
soda for me at home
wine

On our girls trip, I did buy a cute halloween shirt that I found at Burlington Coat Factory for $12 and I have bought an occasional bottle of wine (although it is just an occasional treat, rather than an evening glass)

I even stuck to my guns after my 1 of 2 pair of jeans ripped beyond repair.

Just a few more weeks to go. I have a nice selection of holiday sweaters that I pull out after Thanksgiving...so it will soon feel like I have a new wardrobe anyways!

How Boring I must have seemed

I did an online survey last night. It was one of those update surveys on our shopping habits.

Have you ate at any of the following places in the past 3 months... NO

Have you flew for business or pleasure in the last 12 months....NO

Have you stayed at any hotels in past 6 months... NO

Do you buy the following products.. NO

Do you plan to buy a car...NO

Do you plan to take a cruise... NO

Remodel... NO

Order Magazines...NO

No, No, No....

It was an enlightening experience to see just how much I dont spend money on...things that I never really even think about. I am sure the survey people put me on the "Is she even still alive list"...lol

What else i am not buying in 2006

During the camping trip, I came up with a few more items that I wont be buying for the rest of the year.

Soda for mefrom the store. If we eat out, I might splurge, but I am not buying soda for me for the rest of the year. I will be drinking water. (DH and DD3 would never buy into this, so I will continue to buy theirs...but less often... ("What, no soda??? Darn, I KNEW I was forgetting something...")Wink

Wine. I enjoy an evening glass of wine, but I have decided I can do without for the remainder of the year. My only exceptions are Holidays.

These two will help the new tighter budget...and will also help my health...who knows, I may just unform a couple of old habits!!
