|Maybe my problem is that I have no "Degaree."|
1) T-Shirts - Pass! - I'm on a strict no more than two t-shirts a month diet. In February, I purchased three; this is okay, though, because in January, I only purchased one (so the extra shirt rolled over into February). Frankly, I'm fairly happy just pinning t-shirt designs that I like on Pinterest (as I discussed in a comment over at So Over Debt), so my t-shirt quota may go down even further in coming months.
2) Books - Pass...ish! - I was to purchase no more than two physical books and five ebooks (both for money reasons and for my-condo-is-the-size-of-a-shoe-box reasons). For my part, I succeeded (though I did buy an extra book for my wife that I don't think counts for the purposes of this challenge). Also, I realized that even though I thought this goal was very specific, there was actually a good amount of gray area (should magazines be considered books? How about scholarly journals?). In short, I got more printed words than I probably should have, but I was technically correct in following the challenge (technically correct being, of course, the best kind of correct).
3) 25 Item Challenge - Crash and Burn FAIL - In between prepping for my grad school interview, rehearsing/learning lines for two plays, and auditioning for another show, I didn't have/make a lot of free time to get rid of 25 items from my house in the way I intended (read: selling them on eBay).
With that said, all three of the above personal challenges are being rolled over to March. Let's see if I can keep my spending down!
