Ah, the last full week of the Challenge. Upon reflection I could have done much better, but my conclusion is that I still need to refine my definition of "want vs need". I spent a bit of money (one Jefferson and George quintuplets) at a second hand store this week on a handful of vintage aprons, fabric from the 60's, and miscellaneous.
Aside from this wistful (not wasteful) purchase, on two mornings I purchased coffee and bagels on my way to work. And one day I purchased a sandwich and soda for lunch - just to get out of the office since we've been so busy lately. The flesh was weak on all those days. Perhaps I just had too much time on my idle hands?
My necessary purchases of the week were my grocery shopping, gas in the car, and a new mop since the lever on my old one had broken rendering it useless.
It was an interesting month. I will have to work on my spending.
