|Just like Olympic Skater Barbie & Ken, frugality & I have won today!|
Today was payday. And, for the first time so far in Shopping Detox, and for the first time in recent memory, I had money in my bank account *before* I got paid! I am no longer living literally paycheck to paycheck!
Yes, friends. I spent within my means throughout this whole last pay period and had money LEFT OVER. I was not in overdraft whatsoever *and* I have made payments on my credit card *and* on my line of credit *and* the debt I owe my mother.
Dare I say that... shopping detox is starting to work?
How did I do it?
1) Following my SD rules
2) Paying attention to what I'm spending
3) Not buying unnecessary things
So exciting! And also, I was so happy and had no urge to spend money in celebration. So... win?
