Oh boy, that was hard! But then it was ok. 361 days to go...

I knew the first challenge for me would be in the form of a Great Deal!  I'm always on the hunt for a good deal...on clothes or anything else. I know all the tricks, all the places to get coupon codes, and I truly believe I could be in the bargain shopper Olympics. Well...that may be overstating it a bit...but you get the idea:)

So, of course, I see a great deal today. And I started the whole thought process of going about getting the deal...and I stopped dead in my tracks. I can't! I can't! I can't! At first I felt kind of sad. But then I felt...kind of liberated. Because, I just saved some precious moments of my life by not taking the time to get that deal.

I wonder if it would even be possible to calculate how much time people spend shopping in a year.  There have been times I've considered bargain hunting a hobby of mine. But, no more.  There are many more worthwhile things in my life that could use even the extra seconds of time that I'll save day-to-day. I will consider "gaining time" one positive gained by this challenge, even early on!
