Taking a smart suggestion from a friend, you know who you are!, I am heading over to the Budget Ronin and now our blogs will be combined. Thanks for stopping by but we'll be over here if you need us!

Count down to Mayday

Over at our brother blog, Budget Ronin, there is a great explanation of our purpose. Here's a snippit:
"So there it is. My five minute manifesto. I'm cutting myself free from all my bad purchasing habits and putting them at arm's length for a year. This is where the wandering begins."

Mainly that personal spending for this year (May 1, 2007 - May 1, 2008) is quietly being eliminated. Well not really quietly, hence this blog and the OTHER blog.
This will be my space to vent and cry and moan and hopefully GROW and find the pleasure in smaller things. I don't think this will be hideous but I think it will be very hard. I also think it's a mindset adjustment instead of a real behavior change. Or maybe both. Who knows? (I must say I can hear you laughing from here T. :P )
Hopefully you will find the differences in our approach to this challenge entertaining!
Hmmm....I better order some stuff online before next Tuesday....
