Well everyone, Day 4 of my experiment to not spend a dime has come. It is getting a little harder as the week rolls on, especially since Thursday night is almost here. But I am convinced that I can pull this off somehow, I just need to stick with it.
The Urge To Spend
I wrote yesterday about having an urge to go spend money on anything. Luckily, that feeling has passed now and I have not had any urges since. I have actually grown to like the idea of saving money. I keep coming up with little things to do to help keep my mind off of it. Here are some of the things I have done today:
Whipped Out The Rollerblades
I felt like I was going a little crazy this morning, so I decided to get outside and enjoy the weather. I busted out my sweet rollerblades and took a nice ride around the town. It felt great to get outside and see people instead of looking out the window.
It reminded me how much I enjoy the little things like going for walks and rollerblading. These things are easy to forget about when you are too busy spending money on random things like going to the movies.
Cleaned Up My Desk
I have been working a ton over the last month to get some new sites up and it has taken a toll on my work area. I managed to get it reorganized and feel 10x better now that I am sitting at a clean desk. I am glad I decided to spend the 30 minutes it took to get it all straightened out.
Read Other Peoples Blogs
I spent some quality time this morning just going around and reading various blogs that I have forgotten about. It is hard to keep up with everyone when your so busy on your own projects. It was nice to see what everyone has been up to lately.
A Few Days To Go
From now until Monday morning is going to be the toughest stretch of the experiment. Between going to the show tomorrow night and the weekend creeping it up, it will definitely be an interesting ending.
So stay tuned to the next few days, hopefully I can end this experiment on a high note!
