my energy drinks!! I am so addicted to them. It's bad. I'm moody when I don't have one in the morning. As soon as I drink it, I feel great but then when it wears off I am moody again. It's annoying. So....I am hanging up my calendar and I will put a smiley face on all of the days that I do not buy an energy drink. I will transfer $2 from my paypal account into my savings account. I get to buy whatever I want with the (hopefully) $60 I will have in savings at the end of the month. I'd much rather have a new outfit, shoes or makeup then an energy drink. I think I can do this.

Wish me luck, I'm going to need it!

Good luck! I'm not into energy drinks but I know that if I had to give up my morning coffee I would be pretty miserable. Paying yourself is an awesome idea.

Good Luck! I know giving up something like that is really hard to do!!!

I believe in you though. I can't wait to hear what you end up buying at the end of the month with your money reward

Thank you Julka for my amazing Siggy<3

good for you! I know so many people who have 'problems' with energy drinks - I think they're as addictive as alcohol personally... probably not quite so bad an addiction, but an addiction all the same!

Emma, you are soooo right about them being addictive. It's day 4 and I'm doing great without them!! I picked up some 5-HTP (thanks to the book "The Diet Cure") and it's been helping my mood. Even my son's annoying trucks with lights and sounds are no longer bothering me. lol Hopefully, this continues to work for me. I'm already trying to figure out what to spend my "fun money" on.
