I have denied myself new clothes, fun events - even basic needs like a new strapless bra and new glasses frames and an ink cartridge for my color printer! - all to pay off my credit card, and when I get close to success I buy lots of books, because "books are good."
I really need to step back, stop, and get ahold of myself. I do not need new books, and I have plenty to read sitting on a shelf just outside my bedroom door.
No more needed 'til these are read.
