Just got in, did a bit of shopping today..I needed to pick up some random things like shampoo and toilet paper.

I also was feeling like a should get into the holiday spirit and put up some decorations so i swung around to a few thrift stores on the hunt for something. i ended up with a strand of lights for $2, what was boxed up like a strand of lights but really ended up only being a box of random bulbs (grrr) for 99 cents, and some cute lil candle holders and tray (i know not holiday decorations but whatever lol) for $7. I was very proud of myself for putting back lots of random things that I picked up and then decided that i didn't really need.

Oh, and towards my millionaire fund:
I found a penny in the parking lot.

Might write some more later

    Sometimes you can find great stuff for decorations at a second hand store, and hey, I think that candlelight definitely can lead to some additional holiday spirit. It's nice that you have some insurance of self-control, as well, not just buying everything because it's cheap. Smile Jerry

    Jerry, you are correct...good self control! We have found some nice things second hand.

    My first thought was "Hey, what's not festive about shampoo and toilet paper?" Wink Seriously, though, some of our nicest Christmas decorations are things that we found at second hand stores, and it leads to a ton of savings over buying them new. (Or you can always try to get some stuff between Christmas and New Year, when you have the additional insurance of 50+% off, that helps as well!) Happy New Year to you!

    Controlling your purchases significantly increases your chances of becoming a real lean person who appreciates his work.
