Well, to say we were busy this summer is an understatement! Nothing like adding a whole human to your family to keep things interesting! I really appreciate all of my awesome blogging buddies that kept you company as part of the “At Home With” series and for all of your support and sweet comments as we adjusted to being a family of four.
For anyone new around SSOM, here is a recap of the top 10 posts from the summer. Oh! And I am officially declaring September “No Spend-Tember“… Intrigued? Read on!
Phew! I am actually surprised at how much we accomplished this summer.
Now, let’s take a look ahead to September. Do you have certain times of the year where you just feel like you are spending too much? I know it usually hits me around the holidays, but lately I feel like I am oozing cash.
So, I am declaring it “No Spend-tember” around the household.
Yep, you heard me correct. Unless it is a necessity, I will not be buying it.
I am stating it here so you can help keep me accountable. This means no extra stops in Target, no quick trips by the Goodwill, and definitely no Costco runs. Because clearly I have no self control in these places.
Hmmm… what will I be doing instead of wandering the aisles of Target? We are going to have fun using what we have around the house to kick-start some fall decorating, get our preppy on (big news coming Thursday!), and finish a couple projects that have fallen by the wayside.
You aren’t going to want to miss a thing!
