2017!! New Year, new challenges!
This is a continuation of the purchase challenge I started in 2014, making this is the 4th year of purchase tracking. 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.
