March Financial Challenge – Wrap up

All right, checking in for the March financial challenge, which was to curb impulse spending.  And I did not meet this challenge.  I did pretty well for about the first half of the month, and then kind of let it go out the window.

March was a rough month for me, and not to make excuses, but I think that’s part of what happened in my decision making process.  I don’t think I would classify it as retail therapy, but I do think I had a tendency to start thinking “This month sucked, screw it, I’m gonna buy what I want.”

I should probably work on that. 😉

Anyhow, didn’t do so great at the challenge.  Trying to participate in these challenges each month is making me more aware of my finances in general, so I feel I’m still getting something out of it.  Can’t wait to see what April’s challenge is!
