Day one of the “No Spend Challenge” was a breeze!
After a night out ringing in the New Year with friends I was happy to spend the day lounging in my PJs, watching bad TV and cleaning. I only left the house for about an hour to take my son to the park and go for a quick run.
Today however is shaping up to be a bit more challenging. Returning to work presents its own set of challenges. I packed my lunch (I always do), but watching everyone walk by my desk holding a Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts cup makes me REEAALLYY want one.
I don’t usually drink Starbucks as my wonderful husband roasts, grinds, and brews me a delicious cup every morning. But today for whatever reason my travel mug of coffee just doesn’t seem as fun as that white cup with the mermaid.
I guess the old saying is true “you want what you can’t have.” I know I can not spend the money on a coffee so now I want it. Friend’s don’t let me drink Starbucks this month! 🙂
