Buy Nothing New October

Tasmanian Minimalist, a fellow blogger who's been quite inspiring to me has just embarked upon "Buy Nothing New October." I think it's a great idea and I've decided to come along for the ride.

I cannot believe that October is actually here. But I'm ready. October ushers in great sweatshirt weather, beautiful multi colored leaves on all the trees, and great temperatures for walking/ exercise. We've the first ultra sound on Monday... boy or girl!?!? I've never been so excited about anything in my life. I feel like I'm back in the game with the budget and I'm hopeful that the first week in October is going to be another balanced budget week.

I can't remember the last time I bought something new BUT I'm looking forward to consciously thinking about it again everyday. I'm kind of looking forward to buy nothing new/ stick to the budget/ work with the husband on OUR spending October.

Let's do this!
