New Year's Resolutions

Well It's almost June and time to review my New Year's resolution. I usually don't make resolutions but I did this year, although I've modified it a bit from what I start with. My resolution was originally to stop buying "stuff". Shortly after the new year I realized that what I really wanted to do was to stop buying CR*P. This resolution is what has fueled my T2T passion. I still like to change things in my home, but I'm sick of spending money. I realized that it's now almost 6 months into the year and I've done pretty well. My Walmart/Target file has only 2 receipts in it. Did you hear that, 2. That is awesome in my opinion. I have also not set foot in Linens N things or BB & Beyond all year. I have no desire to do so either. Went in Hobby Lobby yesterday with DH for him to get some glass, and I browsed, but did not buy. Frankly I don't want any of that stuff anyway. I'm almost to the point where "new" turns my stomach. We can have so much without having "new". My creativity has been fueled and I'm not feeling as if I'm doing without. I'm spending less time in front of the TV, and I'm very very happy. And all of this without setting foot into a Walmart.

I also have to stop myself from buying stupid decor crap that just keeps piling up in the shed. But it's hard to resist when it's $1 or less! Love the shutter headboard!

You are my hero! I am so amazed at your creativity and what you are able to make. I need to learn how to use those powertools and start making things, too. I'm like you - I do rarely ever buy brand new. I don't have the budget for it first of all - second of all, I *love* the hunt for used treasures and finding out what I can do with certain pieces. I can't wait until I have more time to work on fun stuff like this! You just keep inspiring us!

I decided about a week ago that I needed to find a blog with people who share my interests and then, wow~I saw your card at Our Little Corner (I used to have one there,too). I really enjoy your stuff and I share your philosophy. I hate to just throw stuff out if it can be repurposed. I also love canton. I recognized some of the places in your photos. I was there New Years Day too. I'm so excited to see your websites and am saving it to my favorites. Thanks for sharing!
