It is officially 2011 and to celebrate I am kicking off the new year with a little challenge (resolutions are so 2010). I've decided to ban shopping (for clothes) until my last credit card is 100% paid off. [dun dun dun]. I know, I know, swearing off shopping is not exactly novel, but it is much needed. Lately, I've been taking the easy way out when it comes to my clothes. I wear the "same old, same old" for awhile and when I get bored I buy something shiny and new.
My estimated pay off date is March 30th which leaves me 90 days of no shopping, by far my longest self-imposed ban. I'll even open my pain up to all of you. Will you join me? Please? There is just one rule, there are no rules. Oh no wait, that's fight club. The one rule is, no shopping until my credit card's paid off. Deal? Deal.
Maybe I'll even get it paid off sooner to put us all out of our misery, me out of my debt, and SSF out of his constant state of worrying about money.
What are your plans for the New Year? Will any of you actually play along with me? Does this cartoon make you laugh a little?
