"When I read about, or saw, something great in a magazine, I thought we should have it," she says. "Everything had to be more, bigger, better." What made her stop? "Suddenly, I realized I was planning this whole thing so that I'd be with my husband for the rest of my life, not so I could say my sugar cubes matched my flowers." When you find yourself ignoring your budget, remember the same thing.
