as i mentioned last week here on the plum i was charged by cleveland's local NBC affiliate WKYC (and my friend maureen kyle), to go on a spending detox - i.e. not spend a single dollar for an entire week.
well the week was completed this past sunday and the results are in!
the first video below sets the stage for this single, happy hour hoppin', shopaholic's spending detox. (it's a compilation video of the multiple pieces that aired over this past monday's morning show)
this next video is recaps how i did during the spending detox, what spending habits i had to break and if i actually learned anything. (like the first video this one is also a compilation of the multiple pieces that aired during yesterday's morning show)
the second video actually made me laugh more because of the flip video shots of me singing "smile and ride freeeeeeeeeeee" and of my pathetically sad lunch - i'm dieting, leave me alone, haha.
after all was said and done i'm very happy i participated in the challenge, it was a fun experience and i even learned a thing or two - shocking, i know.
also, the fact that it was televised didn't hurt - seriously, i want to be famous when i grow up.
