1. Everyone else is doing it and apparently, I like bandwagons.
2. I spend way to much time talking about knitting(often to myself), so I decided to write about it.
3. I am horrible at staying in touch with people, so this allows me to do it all at once.
4. We are doing a no-spend month, in preparation for a minimal spending year. This should prove interesting.
5. I want a laptop (after next year of course) and so I need to spend enough time on the computer to make a laptop seem necessary.
