Ok, like many others who have done this, I'm not comfortable calling it "30 Days of Nothing". It's much more appropriate to call it "30 Days of Less-and not that much less". I haven't really suffered yet. I have begun to realize how much we spend on non-essential extra things. There are all kinds of temptations that have called to me in the past week and a half. Some of them included: an auction, a library sale, a book sale at the hospital, McDonalds (several times), a festival, garage sales, the thrift store....the list goes on.
I am having a little fun with the food as I do each year at some point. I try to get as many meals as possible out of what I have on hand. I have bought milk, juice and a little bit of fruit.
As for the chocolate....the good stuff has run out and I've been reduced to eating the boys Easter candy. I know. It's sad.
