A penny saved is a penny earned.

I did manage to save myself some money yesterday by avoiding the retail therapy session I so desired. How? It was easy.

I decided to walk most of the way home from work with Craig. With all the walking, my frustration kind of disappeared and by the time I got home, the thought of shopping seemed absurd. I had tired myself out just enough to not want to go out again. Hooray!

I think I might be on to something with this walking business. This morning I missed a bus on Cambie and I figured it would be at least another 15 mins for it to come, so I decided to walk the rest of the way. I totally only got there 2 mins after the bus did. And I feel like I have already accomplished something today... and it's not even 9:30am! Crazy. So I might take up some more of this walking thing after all. It's kind of nice. Thanks Craig, for helping me realize that I am a lazy idiot.
