It was so refreshing to take a rest from consumerism this week. It has given me a renewed sense of freedom and financial control, and reminded me what matters most. I hope it did the same for you!
I love that we involved the kids this time. I am so excited to have a regular monthly plan for demonstrating how much fun they can have without spending money. My hope is that it is a lesson they will carry with them and remember as adults!
The 7 Day Challenge for me is really about contentment. I wasted so much of my life wanting what other people had, and truth be told, I still occasionally struggle with it. In this world, where we are bombarded with consumerism, I think it requires effort to keep our minds focused on what matters most. That’s why I love this challenge so much. It re-grounds me in my desire for simplicity and minimalism by giving me a solid week to intentionally practice it.
If you weren’t able to join us this time, I hope you will next month! In the meantime, tune in tomorrow for your weekly drug store deals. It’s time to get serious about stockpiling again, ladies!
