Ode to Frugality

I really shouldn't be spending money right now. I need to be saving up for school because I have to pay for it myself next semester. On top of that I have to buy books. So let the money saving begin! From now on I am going to be more frugal. I usually splurge when I go out. I end up spending too much money on myself. Now, that is probably the most unyogic thing I could do... So I am going to try this for the summer. I am going to work more and spend less. That means not going to starbucks and spending four bucks on a drink that is practically all ICE and not buying things for myself every time I go to the mall. For some reason, every time I go to the mall and see something I like, I buy it. This means that by not buying these things I can practice what is called non-attachment. These days most people are attached to the items that they own (ahem iPhone users...) Because I don't really need these things, I won't buy them. Although there is this really nice thow blanket at World Market that I saw a while ago, I wonder if its on sale... NO!!! I can't!!! I need to stop thinking about shopping!!! So please, wish me luck! Because I am going to need a lot of self control on the challenge.


  1. Women and their shopping. You must know my wife. :)

    Good luck Nancy, hope it all works out for you. You can just make your own coffee. That is what I do. I only drink it in the morning, and that is it.

    Oh well once again, good luck!!!

    don't think about that wonderful wonderful throw blanket though. It sure is beautiful though. ;)

  2. BTW I love how honest you are. That is great. You are wise beyond your years.

  3. Thanks for the compliment! I appreciate it. :)

  4. This is great advice, Nancy! And very well said!
