I will post them on the thread as I chose them . I think to have a month where I don't buy anything will help because if I see something I want it will have to wait until next month. Maybe I won't really want it by then.

I have a budget and tracked it but I went over it a few times due to special sales or discounts . So in 2012 I am going back to my budget again and I am resolved to keep it this year .
I am also going to try to not spend all of my monthly budget each month so I have extra money set aside for The Black Friday and Christmas bargains.
Barbara, I like the idea of 4 months in 2012 of no spending. I think I just might try that in January. I have lots of pages I want to get done and the supplies to do it not to mention I'm traveling some so I'll need the motivation to stay out of the stores ... Feb would be harder because of new catalogs coming out from companies I like and SU! SAB ...

Great Idea! Glad you're with us!
