are you doing it too?

What, you ask? Deleting all the emails notifying you of close-out sales and deals from your favorite stores. The Gap, J.Crew, Victoria’s Secret, Target, Sears…they just don’t stop. 30% off. Final Sale – up to 50% off. Appliance Sale.

This is the first time in my adult life that I automatically delete. Before the economy started to tank, I’d still browser-shop, imagining myself in pretty sweaters and dresses looking like the models on the screen.

I’m trying to change a habit. When I have money, I spend it. When I don’t, I don’t. So I usually don’t adjust my behavior until after I have to.

But no more. No new clothes since September. Skimping on organic in favor of conventional. Store brands rather than name brands. Side job editing papers. Living frugally.

I hope it’s over soon.
