May 9, a story in two parts. Part 2: And then this happened.
When you think everything's okay and everything's going right.
And life has a funny way of helping you out when
You think everything's gone wrong and everything blows up
In your face."

Another month down.
But here we are, now four months in, and still a complete success:
April Year to Date Category
$0 $0 Clothing
$0 $0 Shoes
$0 $0 Accessories
$0 $0 Cosmetics
$0 $0 Kitchen items
$0 $0 Gadgets/electronics
$0 $0 Furnishings
$0 $0 Books
$0 $0 Shrubs/trees
$0 $0 Non-necessary household goods
As you can see, I originally only excluded shrubs and trees because I had three pots out front that needed flowers and I usually fill them with annuals. And I wanted to put in an herb garden. The herbs count as food, so that's easy. I use them regularly in cooking and growing my own is cheaper than buying them fresh through the long warm season. So I did that this weekend - put in basil, parsley and dill in the raised bed, and rosemary and oregano in pots on the deck. But I scouted around my yard and found some thriving perennials to divide and transplanted them into the pots. It was a major victory for me to enter a garden center - my personal kryptonite - and walk right by all the colorful flowers for sale without buying anything but the herbs.
I tell you, this whole no-shopping challenge is making me think deeply about spending and goals and values in a way that all the decluttering I've done over the years has not. And I'm only a third of the way in!
