So far, so good. It's been almost a week and I have not broken my vow of shop-less-ness yet!
I did manage to break our DVD player, and we now have a new (to us) one - but the beautiful thing is all I had to do was ask if anyone had an old one they didn't need. Lo and behold - a friend had TWO of them he was going to sell at a yard sale. He said he would much rather give one to me so we met downtown for the exchange. Painless and free. Fantastic! He felt good being able to help and I, miraculously, was able to graciously accept the gift. It was very nice.
So, 24 days to go folks. How are you doing on your quest to curb your spending? ;-)
