Buying ban

Image result for shopping banI read a story of a lady who decided to go on a buying ban.
For 12 months she did not buy clothes, shoes, accessories, nail polish, books/magazines, notebooks, candles, household items, home decor, electronics or take out coffee.
Other people followed her along. The biggest reason was to try to be a conscious consumer.
2nd top reason was to save money. Number 3 was to enjoy and appreciate what you have and number 4 reason was to break a bad spending habit.
The hardest things to give up were movie tickets, eating out and weekend plans/spending.
Some lasted a week, some made it for 12 months.
Could you do it ?
What would you try to give up?

6 habits for an organized life

Image result for good habits
  1. make your bed everyday
  2. empty your car of any clutter everyday
  3. check your belongings before you buy something new. You may be able to repurpose what you are looking for.
  4. put stuff like keys, purse, and jacket, in their appropriate place when you walk in.
  5. wipe your table and counters after every meal.
  6. check your agenda the night before
I can be guilty of the car statement. I have had my little pruners in my car since last Wednesday.
I was surprized by number 5. I didn't think anyone left their table not wiped clean.
