OK, I'm not the only one.
The Toronto Globe and Mail tells me that people spend around $237 (about 20%) of their Christmas gift budget on . . . themselves!
What are you buying yourself this Christmas?
And are you shopping for you in the stores? On line? Or both??
No big indulgences from me to me, actually . . . but there have been a few bargoons hunted down on ebay and etsy. Some "new" wool suits for work at amazing amazing prices: with shipping, about $40 each.
And last weekend I had to buy some new brown boots given my old ones had collapsed completely. On sale again (with a sharply discounted second pair of shorty beige cowgirl boots, not expensive at all). (That's because I hate to pay full price for anything.)
NOT overeating. NOT overstuffing with holiday indulgences.
Tracking every day.
Sticking with the non-caloric indulgences. So that my 29" waistbands will still fit when those etsy suits arrive in the mail!
Highly motivating, this self-gifting stuff!! (And nowhere close to $237 either.)
