A Mini Challenge

Remember when I did the #nospend in March this year? It was a really good activity for me to go through and I learned a few things about my spending habits. But I have to admit, I did not necessarily put into practice new habits from what I learned.

One of the main habits I thought about was checking online craft sites daily for what was new and what was on sale. Yes, every day.  I put myself on a much needed craft #nospend this month but I would still check those sites daily. So yesterday I put myself on a mini three day challenge: don't check the shopping sites until the end of the month. 

It was quite interesting to see how I automatically clicked over to the shopping sites from the blogs I check daily. Scarily automatic. I managed to intercept my natural checking on the first one in time (before the shopping site loaded). It made me cautiously aware for the next sites I checked out.

Yesterday I managed to not check the three sites I check daily. Let's see how tonight and the rest of tomorrow goes.....

Update: I did it! The very next day I did order a stamp set from Altenew but it was my prize from them and I did wait until August.
