The shopping ban has been totally smooth in it’s first week, but then I saw these and it stung:

Ridiculously cute, probably equally comfy Jeffrey Campbell sandals? His shoes are my weakness! On payday! But I closed the window, unsubscribed from Lori’s shoes emails temporarily, and took a deep breath.

Then I unsubscribed from a lot of shopping emails and it felt bittersweet. Then I put a chunk of my paycheck into my savings account and I felt great.
