Stop- I want to get off!

A few small (read huge!) changes have been occurring in the Diamante House! As a result the financial reins are being pulled in super super tight (like a nasty corset that breaks your ribs).

Now this is all fine and dandy really and not forever and totally necessary and for the future of our family and the light at the end of the tunnel is bright and blah blah blah. The problem is that I am a total absolute lover of stuff bit of a material girl and so I have to give it up. All of it...no extras, nada, nothing, nix, OUCH!

The first thing I did was hit my email inbox and slowly, over a week, unsubscribe to all of the fabulous shopping and bargain and sale sites that flood my happy little email inbox with material love on a daily basis.
It hurt. 
I didn't like it. 
What if I missed a bargain, or the latest handbag or shoes or lovely little dress for the mini diamantes???
Hah, hah, what then???? I mean the world might stop and I would fall in a heap, wouldn't I??

Well, no, actually I am fine. And I am feeling better about the no spending thing because all of that lovely Internet shopping goodness is not being waved under my nose to the tune of 90 emails a day! (Did I say BIT of a material girl?? I lied)

So seriously, if you want to pull the reins in too then start at your inbox and clear out the temptation. It's like when you go on a diet and eat ALL of the naughty food in the cupboard in one sitting cause it would be a waste to throw it out...(everyone does that right? Please?!!!)
