i would LOVE to do this. but i know i couldnt. theres just no way. i applaud myself if i dont place a damn amazon order in a week. its pretty bad actually. im fantastic with every other aspect of my finances. we bought a home well under our budget and keep our bills so so low and because of that i always tend to have so much extra money in the bank and it just cant sit there! its a sickness really

techmom :  I did start out by thanking my things, and it did help! But I will say, I think it was imperative that I felt guilty when I got rid of rooms full of stuff. The guilt is what drove me to stop buying more stuff, because I never wanted to have go through that again! But now that it’s been years, I am completely in the habit of not purchasing and I love it. 

Nesting Story on Youtube has a super inspiring video playlist where she cleared out her house! I know your goal is to stop spending, but to me the two really go hand in hand.
