With all that we own and all that we received for the holidays, right now we are feeling like our spaces are pretty full. So, it’s time to think about taking on a challenge – not buying anything except essentials for the month of January.   That’s right, no late night online shopping, no after-holiday bargain hunting, no runs to TJ Maxx or Marshalls to browse.  Besides food and absolutely essential items (think toilet paper) try not to purchase anything during this month – no matter how much it’s on sale for, or who else has it. No clothes, shoes, electronics, housewares, sports equipment…you name it, take a break. Save your money and spend your time doing things you love.  See how it makes you feel!
