About the Stopping Spree

Welcome!  I created this blog to document my year-long resolution to end all unnecessary spending.  Basically, I’m embarking on the opposite of a shopping spree…I’m on a stopping spree.

I’ve attempted goals like this before, but not experienced much success.  By committing my pledge to cyber-paper, I’m hoping it will add more accountability to my choices.  I plan on sharing the ups and downs of my year, both the challenges and the triumphs.  I want to get creative with homemade gifts, holiday decorations, and clothing combinations – all using items/materials I already own.

I invite you to read along – or better yet, join in!
