Got all the stuff I ordered & now I'm frozen until May. That doesn't include paper & ink for my Selphy.

Good luck! May seems like a long time away. I don't know if I would be able to last that long.

I don't think I could do that. I froze myself from Jan. 20 until now, and I'm ready to buy again!

I don't think I can do that either, with a list of things I "need" a mile long

Good luck! It's kind of fun challenging yourself to use up all the things you loved enough to buy before. Now just stay away from the enabling threads!

Good luck!

I was able to stay frozen for almost two years but I made a Realistic budget for myself! Although my "frozen" state is not so much about being frozen but staying within budget and using what I own rather than buying new. I have not once gone over my budget, am using a ton of stuff I own while still getting some new stuff and I am spending less than 1/4 of what I used to spend and I'm much happier with it!

It is sort of like a diet, not many people can just change their habits overnight, set realistic goals and you can do it!

Wow, that's tough. My friend and I are frozen for all luxury purchases (clothes, scrap stuff, magazines, books,etc) from Jan. 15th till March 1, and that feels hard. So many CHA releases out already that I want and may be hard to find by then. On the other hand, it feels good to use up some of my stash. And really, I did it as much for the psychological reasons as the financial ones---I was spending too much of my energy on shopping and didn't like that part of me. So good luck!

Good luck! I was trying to freeze but still ended up spending a little, maybe 20% of what I would normally spend & some of that was $$ from selling stuff; so it still felt really good. I have also been using alot of older stuff & getting alot more pages done since I haven't been shopping. Now if I could only quit peaing
