Almost a year ago, I decided to stop buying online courses and workshops.
My fiance and I were looking at making a loss selling our apartment, due to a price drop on the housing market, and already having signed a contract to buy our new house at a fixed price. So we had to save all the money we could.
It’s not like I bought courses all the time, probably a couple a year, but enough to decide it wasn’t a priority until we’d moved.
That’s where my restrictions began, but as we got closer and closer to moving, they expanded to a shopping ban including clothes, books, eating out and pretty much all things that weren't essential.
It was a challenge, but it's one I'm grateful for because it taught me a lot.
