Yarn Diet + Food Diet = Incentive Program
For those of you that don’t know, this year I put myself on a yarn diet. The only time I’m allowed to buy any yarn is if I need it for a specific project. Why you might ask? I’ll show you……
Now you know why I put myself on a yarn diet! At the beginning of the year I organized and put all my stash in one location, and this is what I came up with. I’m embarrassed to say this isn’t all of it. I thought hubby was going to be really upset….he just laughed and said he wasn’t surprised! Anyway, for some reason, the number of buckets isn’t decreasing.
Problem #2….I gave birth to 5 children in 8 years. Don’t get me wrong, I love them, and if given the opportunity I’d do it all over again. I love how close in age they are. The problem is I have about 30 lbs. I’d like to lose.
This morning I came up with a solution. An incentive program if you will.
For every pound I lose I get to buy a skein of yarn! YAY me!!! LOL (I’ll only go to the store once a month to avoid temptation)
For every 10 pounds I lose I get to add an additional skein to my purchase.
For every bucket I empty I get to make a batch of cookies, brownies, whatever. ;)
What do you think?
