I have found this to be true for myself. Amazingly accurate for most of my friends as well.
The longest I went was the year I gave up buying craft supplies for Lent - wait that IS six weeks!!

I guess he's right.

Organizing is what always costs me money. I buy things to organize myself so I'll use what I have and save money but I just keep spending money on organizing stuff. I think I might have a world record for the biggest variety and quantity of bookcases.
