Been looking through the SU! catalog and making wish list. This Cold Turkey thread is the greatest help. I haven't kept track of what I have spent but can tell you one thing - it is definitely much less than before I found all of you. Don't even go to M's, ACMoore, or JoAnn's just to use those wonderful coupons (that will SAVE me money) anymore. That is because I found this thread. Some of the reason for my stash is just that idea of having to use a coupon to save money. What a joke on me! No more thanks to the encouragement you have all given.
I do plan on keeping track of my spending for the rest of the year. It will be neat to see the results. Knowing I am going to write it down in a book will be another reason to stop and consider before buying.
I am so glad you put the question out on how we were all doing. It came just in time for me to put the brakes on with the new SU! catalog. I just tore up my wish list! Thanks, one and all. Please keep the thread going. It is a lifesaver.
