The Scary Start

Our family is about to embark upon a new and frightening challenge. We are going to try very hard to go an entire year without shopping for anything other than food or depletables. We read about this in a magazine article and thought it might be interesting to try ourselves. Our plan is to begin January 1, 2010. We are currently working on a list of items we view as depletable and will post soon. We have a 7-year-old and a 2-year-old so this will certainly be a challenge I think. Our 7-year-old has already expressed concerns but we are trying to reassure him that he will not go without anything he really needs. I would be lying if I said I thought this was going to be easy. Most of our family and friends will probably think we're nuts and we may very well be before the year is up! More to come...
