all from Leif.
I figure it's a new year and a perfect time to set the tone for the rest of the year by really sticking to my budget and refraining from buying things that aren't on my need-to-buy list. There are plenty of other things that are on that, so I'm challenging myself to save every penny and put it towards things that will actually make me happy and make a difference in my life. On the top of that list is a new mattress for Ben so he can finally have a full-size bed and a new high chair for Naomi since her vintage one is not very safe. Those things are meaningful and useful and I will be so happy when I can save up and buy them. My weakness is all kinds of pretty things for the home that aren't that expensive in and of themselves, but I've seen how one thing here and one thing there, added up, could have been something big that I thought wasn't in the budget. I'm holding myself accountable this year and making only thoughtful, meaningful purchases, and prioritizing things ruthlessly. I did a lot of cleaning and purging last year, and I want to keep up that simplified lifestyle this year. Here's to a new year and new habits! Amen?
