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!
