I gave in

I got another membership solicitation from my favorite NPR station, which I listen to regularly. I'm so annoyed that congress (yes, little "c") is considering cutting funding. So I caved. I saw the email (cue guilt trip) and did it. And naturally not the minimum- no, no. Must be big spender. Good-by $100. Trade one guilt trip for another. Nice job keeping the balance.

  1. I think charitable contributions, even when you're trying not to spend, are great. It's money that's going to good, not STUFF. The trick is probably to donate intentionally, not out of resignation. Maybe you should create a Soul Budget and consider it dues. Don't let random solicitations surprise you.
