target strikes again

i must confess that when i went to target for groceries yesterday, i really wanted to break down and buy something. anything. a belt, a scarf, a necklace…any clothing or accessory item would have done. instead, i pulled out my phone and re-read my rules, reminding myself that this challenge is bigger than myself.

thanks for keeping me honest, friends. knowing that i’d have to tell you if i did buy something helps keep my wants in check. i’m thankful for you. i also hope that you have the best tuesday of your life. that is all. until tomorrow, my dears.
