28 Days Later
I thought of a little challenge for myself this morning, no toys for 28 days... okay what I mean is no purchasing toys for 28 days. My wife thought this was an awesome idea, then I told her I was going to throw it out on the blog to see if anyone else thought they could hold out 28 days, she told me I was going to have a very lonely time. Whatever! Lets face it I am not going to stick to the routine of reporting my budget every month, I believe I stopped last year around this time, but this is something I think I can do. Pffft, what's 28 days. Right?
So with that I will still talk about toys, shoot pictures of toys and I actually have a couple of Ebay purchase scheduled to arrive in a week or two so I should be golden. I paid for them this past Saturday so I'm not buying them in February. My only rule is if someone gives me a toy, that is cool, but I can't beg them for it or ask for it, it just has to be given freely. I'm really excited about this. So with that I may make one last trip to the store tonight to get it out of my system, I have cleared my Ebay watch list of stuff I have been hoping to pick up in the coming weeks and will do my best to stay away form the online stores and the toy aisles.
Starting tomorrow the count down begins to see how long I can last at not buying a toy. In 28 days I might reward myself with something cool and special, we'll see in 28 days.
Are you guys with me?
