As I found out with the 2013 New Guest series, doing monthly recaps and evaluations seems to be very helpful to remain mindful about our objectives and habits.

As promised, here is the second part, and final post, about my shopping fast experiment. I have decided to cut it in two to avoid having too long posts, and encourage discussion on each topic instead of blurting everything out at once. This part focuses on the evolution of my mindset as a consumer and as a growing human being.
