It’s been a while since I decided to stop spending money just for fun. And I have been quite successful. There is not much I have to confess. However, I’m breaking my promise again right now because I can’t think of a matching colour for my baby blanket others than white.
Things I bought:
two metal rings and two karabiner hooks for a project I have in mind (Swiss francs 10.80)
train tickets (first class, what a luxury) for my boys when we went to a family gathering in Schaffhausen. We could have taken the car but going by train is a pleasure (Swiss francs 110.00).
a coke in the restaurant after the French class on Tuesday (Swiss francs 4.00)
Things I’m going to buy:
2 balls of white yarn, 1.50 each in Coop City, Wil.
Things I did not buy:
fixed/changed the lamp (not the bulb) in the bathroom (Swiss francs 60.00)
brought pears and apples from the orchard to school (Swiss francs 7.00)
I did not buy a new woolen sweater in nice colours although I am so tired of the brown one I bought in Montreal two years ago. I was tempted, and it now feels like a victory.
I haven’t been to the thrift store since my experiment started.
