Nine days and I've broken it already...

I bought fabric today. I needed some colours of floss so I went to Spotlight and came home with two lengths of fabric to make some summer work shirts out of... What I should have done, being that I only have a few summer work shirts (hang on, I'm only going to be working two days a week, how many do I need???) is buy them secondhand. I really suck at this Compacting... Bring on April and freedom!!!

This all doesn't say much about my self-control or commitment does it.... Nine days into Compacting and I've broken the pledge already. I can sook, flagellate myself, or get over it and move on. I think the last option is the best one.

I guess the best thing now is to actually make the shirts, instead of having the fabric get lost in my stash, like 90% of the rest of the fabric I've bought in the last year! Hubby agrees... He's on my case too. Sigh...

You're right: just move on. The thing is that so many people believe that it's all or nothing and that once you've bought something that's the end, but it's not true. Like everything, it's a journey into simplicity.

Good on you for fessing up too!
