WHAT, IF ANYTHING, DID I SPEND MONEY ON THIS WEEK?
Full disclosure: I spent A LOT of money this week, but it all consisted on consumables and experiences.
I once again reordered the supplement I take for pain and inflammation. This time, I ordered in bulk. This should be over a year’s supply, but will save me a significant amount of money in the long run, though in the short term, it put a serious dent in my wallet…Slowing my spending as I have been doing through this experiment allowed me to be able to make this investment in my health.
The Diderot effect fully activated, I took the new suits to the tailor to have the sleeves altered and I will pick them up later this week. There’s not much point in making the investment in these suits if I don’t make the investment to ensure they fit properly.
On Saturday, I spent the morning at a yoga mini retreat. This involved yoga, meditation, journaling, introspection and community. Then, I got lunch with a friend and helped her declutter and organize her closet. (I am known as the minimalist one among my friends now.)
After that, my husband and I went to a Halloween party on Saturday evening and saw some friends we haven’t seen in awhile. We didn’t do costumes this year, I think because I used up all my creativity last year, when I created 3 different costumes based totally on items I already owned. I just didn’t have any more ideas.
We spent the day on Sunday with my in-laws. I felt like I really started to deepen my relationship with my niece and nephew, who are 4 and 7. As a childfree person who didn’t really relate much to kids even when I was one, sometimes I don’t really know how to interact with kids. Now that my niece and nephew are older, I can relate to them more.
WHAT ELSE WOULD I HAVE BOUGHT?
Total amount I saved that I would have spent this week: $0
Running Total: $4,705
