hiatus, embargo

as of monday (march first), i’m joining in on the shopping hiatus. also know as the consumption embargo.

i currently have zero willpower (though, i have been practicing by going into stores and resisting purchasing things). so, i am hiatusing for one month. for me, it’s about minimizing my spending, but also minimizing my consumption, so my ground rules are as follows:

  • no clothing. lord knows that i have too much as it is.
  • used items that are necessary are okay. specifically, i’ve been looking for a sewing machine and if a good one turns up, i’m not turning my back on it.
  • experiences are okay. going to the movies? check. going out for drinks? check. but, everything in moderation.

i will undoubtedly be keeping updates.
