Now I have significant amounts of debt. So my resolution is to not buy anything else that I cannot afford to. I will not think about buying another vehicle, I will not purchase anything on a credit card (store specific, i.e. Best Buy Credit Card) that I do not absolutely have to, I will not go on a vacation that I cannot afford.
