I bought....

One of my resolutions for the new year was to stop spending money. I honestly wanted to do this for my dh who is the main check writing man. When it is time to do checkbook man, double check the credit card receipts, etc, I want him to happy with me. Not groan and ask, "My God, how many Starbucks does one woman need in a month?" (um it isn't just me buster, now we have two teens who are addicted to them as well.) Or "No Wonder Macy's gave you the platinum card!"

But... even though I gave him all my credit card (Except Macy's cause a girl just has to have her Macy's) I realized that my former much beloved and maligned credit card is saved at my favorite store. Amazon. So I don't even have to have it! My mind whirls just thinking about it. So last week I ordered the 2007 writer's market guide (cause I am kicking my career into full gear and must have one this year) and a Moleskine planner to match my Moleskine journal. Lurve Moleskine. Now I have never been successful at keeping a planner before and I don't know why I think I will be able to keep one now, but I just had to have it! Had to. I would be successful because this was a Moleskine planner. My little finger trembled before I hit the submit order button. You can check them out here- www.moleskine.com.

Unfortunately, my dh works swingshift and will no doubt be here when delivered. But his displeasure won't make my pleasure any less. I'll be good next month, right? And I can always use the "I can write them off!"

Hey, guess what my husband gave me for Christmas? Yup, a Moleskin diary. They are so goregous. I'd never even heard of them until I got it, but now it's a lurve thing. I've even been keeping track of what writing I do every day, which is a first for me!!

You NEED that planner. You can write in the goals area: "Spend less money in February." ;)

I'm going to try to spend less money this year, too. It's hard to break habits, tho!
