2015 is a new year and new opportunity to challenge myself! This is a continuation of the purchase challenge I did in 2014 (evaluation coming). The biggest goal of this Purchase Challenge is to control my book spending: no more than $20 per month.
I always start the draft for these monthly book purchase updates at the beginning of the month. It gives me a chance to look back over the previous month and encourage myself to do better throughout the coming month.
11-May-2015: I’ve been doing great so far this year! I’m hoping to keep this trend up through May. I don’t have any pre-orders “technically.” I DO plan on buying Back to You by Lauren Dane (Hurley Boys #3) but I didn’t pre-order it due to the myriad issues I had with my last Dane pre-order. Back to You was released on 26-May-2015.
