A good night's sleep has done wonders for my attitude!
I have a plan--for discipline, for the house, for my budget. It hinges on a commitment to stay home. Shopping seems to trigger Andrew's bad behavior. My decorating budget is already straining at its seams. I'm falling into the same trap most people do--it's more fun to find new treasures than to unpack boxes and use what I already have. And I have a lot. Boxes of things I've saved from house to house, fabric remnants, old picture frames.
So, the rules: I will find what I need in what I already own. If I don't have it, I'll make it. I will not buy anything for my home from a retail store, including thrift stores. I will not spend time browsing for ideas. Yard sales are still fair game, given that sales are within neighborhood and purchases, within my budget. (I still need Christmas gifts, y'all!)
I'll share each day's project here. Hope you can help me keep me on track!
