Transformation Through Letting Go: Shopping

An unexpected result began to occur. I stopped spending money as much. I realize that last statement may sound strange. When I typically, shop I pick up the things I think my family needs. In the last few weeks, I have not rationalized needing the things that I thought we needed before. I did not initially observe this. My husband did. He called it to my attention one day as we were sitting and chatting about our day. He asked if I was able to find all the things that I need at the stores I frequent because the receipts were less than usual. I answered that I thought so and then we began to discuss what I wasn’t buying and why. I found myself saying” I do not need that particular item” but not knowing exactly why. Perhaps I had been filling a void with stuff. I cannot come to that conclusion with just the data that I have gathered but I do feel there is a correlation.
