I'm going to try this...

Thanks to Nell, I am going to work on this.
Controlling the Clutter, the need to spend, the just one more is all I need.

The Rules of Control the Clutter...
1. Every single time I lay out money for ANYTHING I will ask, do I NEED this. If the answer is no, there will be no purchase.
2. Food is OK. But candy is not. And "extras" like Starbucks, Jamba, and eating out will be seriously examined.
3. No cosmetics, clothes, or office supplies.
4. Especially... NO YARN!!!
5. Use what I have. No need to buy more just because of nice packaging, pretty colors, or any other marketing trick.
The goal is to do this for the age I will be this year - 33 days. So it starts tomorrow and goes until Thanksgiving?!?!? (tomorrow cause I already baought something I didn't need today and I need to check on a pattern I am looking for ;) I will try to swap for it though...

Me too!!! I have tried to do this but this will help inspire me. And I might try a quick little post everyday to let people know of my progress. And its good to see you are an old lady too! Why can't people turn their music down?!?!?! :)

Thanksgiving is more than 33 days. But I'm hoping to extend through the year (Christmas pressies excluded). But I thought I'd start smaller.

I'm so excited that someone else is joining in. Apparently, lots of people already have fiber festival plans...
