It’s Day 5 of my Spending Fast and this is hard. I went running this morning and wanted to run into Sports Authority to pick up some work out gear as a “reward” for finishing my half marathon last weekend. I didn’t. I purposely put only my id, car insurance card and phone into my pocket because I knew I would be tempted to shop. Instead, I drove home and made breakfast for my munchkins. Egg white omelets with organic chicken sausages, broccoli, bell peppers and basil. Yum.
I don’t know why I keep wanting to buy stuff but I do. I don’t need stuff. Stuff turns into clutter and I have enough clutter in my life. This constant wanting of stuff is really starting to drive me insane. I mean I have a closetful of clothes, shoes and everything in between. I have enough food in my fridge/pantry. My kids have enough as well but why isn’t it enough? Why do I want more stuff?
One word. Boredom. I’m bored with my clothes, food etc. Just bored. I need to find another hobby that takes up lots of time and I need to learn how to live with what I’ve got. I also can’t be trusted to go into stores so I’ve made a vow not to go to the malls, Target or any other tempting place.
