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.
05-Jun-2015: I’ve been really good about my budget this year! I think I can keep this momentum throughout the remainder of 2015. *fingers crossed* I do not have any pre-orders (special purchases) in June BUT I did purchase Back to You by Lauren Dane. I will count this as a pre-order/special purchase because the only reason I didn’t pre-order it was due to all the issues I had with the Broken Open pre-order. Back to You was released on 26-May-2015.
07-Jul-2015: Oh. My. GOD! I did GREAT for June!! Great! Great! Great! 😀 (My library got a serious workout, lol…and I have to admit that I have quite a few books from the library at home right now)
