Fiscal Fast Day 5

Another day down.  I soooo wanted to get something today.  Nothing in particular, but anything.  I wanted Wendy’s, I wanted Penn Station, I wanted a Coke, I wasn’t even hungry but I wanted to spend money.  I just wanted to CHEAT!  But I just couldn’t.  So, no unauthorized food or drinks for me!  I have been enjoying looking at my file cabinet.

Top drawer all cleaned out and organized!

Bottom drawer cleaned and organized too!

I have enjoyed having extra cash in my wallet.  I am enjoying not being so busy running around, but I am not enjoying telling myself no.  So, that probably means I need to tell myself NO more often.

For me, this journey of not spending for a week is more mental than physical.  I want to do what I want, when I want.  Another day down.   I hope tomorrow is a little easier!  I’ve been dreaming about what I will buy first when Thursday gets here!

  1. This reminds me of my first fiscal fast…all I wanted to do was buy something. Normally, I wouldn’t want whatever it was but because I couldn’t do it, I wanted to. Funny, isn’t it?

    You are doing so great! Look at all that money you’ll have left!

    • Thanks for being so encouraging! This is a great way to get in touch with “why” we spend. I think I spend sometimes just because I have cash in my wallet. I am learning to be purposeful with my spending!
