90-day No Buy

Starting May 1st, I went on a 90-Day No Buy. I haven't bought anything frivolous in a couple months, but now it's official. And I can't buy anything I don't actually need.

For example, on April 27th, I bought a pull up bar/home gym thing ($15) and on April 29th I bought a laptop stand ($20), both of which I paid for partially with gift cards.

But if it's not a necessary consumable or a bill, it's not getting my money for 90 days. No dining out, either. Except Friday lunches. Friday lunches are special and they are worth the money.

This is going to suck a little. But it's a great exercise in find out how much money I spend on unnecessary crap.
