I've been using hotel bottles of shampoo to save some money and to stop waste. I'm not even halfway through my stash and yet every time I walk into a store, I gravitate to looking at the shampoo aisle. I *know* I don't need shampoo, but not having that big bottle is freaking me out.
We went to Sam's yesterday (yeah I know, I don't like Wal*Mart either). The whole trip was a struggle to not buy anything I don't need. We did manage to get out with just a couple of items - cat litter and pajama pants (which I don't exactly need but they were really cheap and this will let me save my yoga pants). I looked at the aprons because I use them when I bake bread, but decided that my two are enough (and it isn't like they were on sale and a really good deal).
I wonder when I will be able to go into a store without feeling the urge to spend money we don't actually have (or money we do have but which could be better used elsewhere)?
Today was a cleaning day. I got all but one load of laundry done but none of it put away. The boys cleaned their rooms. Mr. Gaia filed the paperwork and started cleaning off the counter. I cleaned my desk and the floor in the family room. Still so much to do and only tomorrow to do it. And I have to work! Sigh.
