I'm fasting from shopping/buying things for Lent. Things I can buy: food, gas, stuff I already use and have run out of (you know - body wash and stuff like that).
So, we're not quite a week into Lent and already my fast from buying things is bringing a lot of stuff into sharper focus. Namely: my shopping problem is worse than I thought.
All problems with behavior start as thoughts and I literally cannot go an hour without thinking of something I want or "need" to buy. I really wish I was exaggerating, but I'm not. I look at my W2 from last year and wonder, where did all the money go?! Serious, serious problem. So, plans for the rest of the year.( more detail about spending habits than you may want )
