Christian speaker Matthew Kelly said that he used to look at catalogs and find things he didn't know he needed 10 minutes before getting the catalog. I was that way, too, buying stuff I didn't need. I long ago contacted all the catalog companies and told them to take me off their list. I've saved a ton of money since then, and not added to my already too-crowded closets. I really need little to live.

I have a desk job, my desk is also a counter, so I bought a mini stepper, so now I step 5 minutes of every hour and get 40 minutes in by the end of my workday! Since it's portable, I'm going to take it home on my days off, to step when I watch TV...I work full time, so I was really struggling with how to get my exercise in while sitting all day at a desk...465
When I see something in a catalog I want - I fold the page down to mark the spot - put the catalog away for a couple of days and then go back to. Most of the time, I change my mind about buying whatever it was I thought I couldn't live without.
I really hate wasting food. Given a choice between wasting and shoving that last morsel down my throat I would eat that last bite (or even the last serving) rather than waste it. THROW IT AWAY! If it can be saved I save it, but if my ONLY 2 choices are eating it or pitching it, I now choose to pitch.
