      It's fun to shop knowing that you really don't need anything. I like to look at "new" things and then maybe a few months later, if I still think I need it, I might go look again.

    I won't buy random things anymore that I don't need. I also have been donating a lot of things since I moved and it has helped so much

    Practicing gratitude will help keep me more motivated by being more happy and not in a bad mood towards anyone for no reason
  • Reflection Question
    Waste Use a Reusable Water Bottle
    While water bottles are needed for health and safety in certain places, we can do more to reduce the unnecessary use of them. What are the barriers to you using reusable bottles and tap water instead of bottled water? How could you make this a permanent habit?

    The barries for me is if I just use my water bottle, not plastic, and just drink tap water it's actually cheaper and no money for me to spend on getting a case of bottled water. How I can make this permanent is If i can keep up just using my water bottle and not buying a case a water I'd be saving me more money

  • Reflection Question
    Food Weekly Meal Planning
    An average American throws out about 240 lbs of food per year. The average family of four in the US spends $1,500 a year on food that they throw out. Does this surprise you? Where would you rather use this money?

    No, it does not surprise me I'd rather use the money more towards bills
