Welcome to Resolution City

Population: One

In an attempt to become healthier and wealthier this year, I am going to:

1) Shape up. I realized while swimming last week that it's more important to shape up than to be a slave to the scale. So I am renewing my commitment to working out 3x/week, and I won't let it bother me if the needle doesn't move much.

2) No more bags. While I'm sure no one enjoys her handbags as much as I do, I also know no one needs as many as I have. For the sake of money and space, no more bags this year. The last one I bought is shown here. The polyester is made from recycled plastic soda bottles. It's nice that my last purse is a fun one.

3) No more books. My TBR pile remains quite tall. There's no reason for me to purchase more until I reduce it by a couple stories. (I crack me up.)

Wish me luck!


  1. oh resolutoions lol!! good luck! I want to keep mine too!

  2. I need to try to cut back too. Luckily bags aren't too much of an issue (though, I can't help but drool over them whenever I go shopping...) but I have a ton of books laying around unnecessarily considering the library is a ten minute walk away.

  3. Luckily, my book addiction is about to go cold turkey because my local book store is closing. And before I buy online, I think twice.

  4. i use the library...i love audio books
    Handbags...oh...the beauty...

  5. Good luck with your resolutions! I know you'll keep us posted. Perhaps you can justify your bag addiction by using them as reusable shopping bags? ;)


Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
