    Shout out to Dana, who I totally stole this definition idea from.

    I like the definition thing and probably use it too often.
    Self control is a hard thing. Especially when there are so many things we are told we “need”.
    I have not been to the new HomeSense either. Maybe if you set a limit for yourself when you go? Last night I went to McNally and told myself I could spend $20 on myself. Ended up only spending $10. (on myself – the rest was spent on a gift for my sister so I think that’s okay)
