Tax season is over. Now what?
With our tax return supplying a nice refund we were finally able to pay off our truck loan. Now what? My first thought is that summer is around the corner and the kids and I could use a new wardrobe. Then it hits me, this is the same thinking that filled my closet with clothes and emptied my savings account. This bad habit it trying to re-enter my life! Habits are hard to break so I must protect my thoughts to change my behavior. Instead of going on a shopping spree I am increasing my savings contributions. Rather that shop I will clean out my closet and sell the items I don't wear; then I will use the money I make to buy summer clothes at the thrift store for my kids and I. I may even splurge on a new blouse, when the kids aren't around.
