I stressed a bit at first about keeping the purse string tightened until October, but upon reflection felt liberated. I won't stalk new collections and new discounts for an entire month. This means that time can be used for something else. Taking care of the co-op application process comes to mind in the real-life category. So does helping out around my parent's place. Catching up on the New Yorker too.
In the fun category I've placed a few things also:
Make Roasted Apricot Stracciatella ice cream (based on Jeni's!) with the late summer harvest.
Have Friday lunch hours with Kev at these places in TriBeCa. I work in the area, and we've been to 3/5 of these restaurants, but hey seconds are just as good.
Learn some new things.
