I was thinking last night about how the toy hoarding that has occurred over here at The ToyBox in the last two months had reached epic proportions, and how I should take a break- since February is the shortest month, maybe a little "month-without-buying-toys" kinda discipline was in order. Well Lo and Behold, I tune into Eclectorama tonight, and ChunkyBamboozle had beat me to it! Some of the other kids were poking fun at his challenge, but I couldn't... because now someone said it out loud: "control yourself".
28 Days Later
The rules are simple:
1). No toys may be purchased during the month of February.
2). Toys received as gifts are acceptable, though no begging or asking for them is allowed.
3). I can still blog about the toys I purchased in January that arrive in February, which is a damn lot so it's not like I'm starving myself :D
4.) I must clean out my "watch list" on E-bay and avoid my favorite online retailers so as not to be tempted. Before I do this, I will pick up two DC Directs I have been eyeballing- I'm gonna be honest here. It's NOT February yet, so...
I want to do this. I'm gonna do this. Can I do this? Can ChunkyBunchaNuts do it?? Will HubbaBubba make fun of us all month? Will the parcel I sent Reis'sPeices make it through the MidWest ice storm I'm caught in?! God, the tension is killing me! :D
