I've decided to give up shopping for the ENTIRE month of March!! I kick myself now, I should have chosen February (3 days shorter). I don't do Lent but I thought this would be an interesting experiment...I like testing my willpower. Oh and it WILL test my willpower. Just like my mom, I hear the siren song of shopping on a daily basis. It's hard for me to walk into a store and not find something that I like and it's also hard for me to not walk into the store in the first place. So for the next 31...30 days there will be no more purchasing of clothes, shoes, or accessories :-(
As far as I can tell, this little experiment will have additional benefits. Since I won't be spending so much money on clothes anymore I am free to re-distribute the saved cash to other parts of my budget (let's assume that said budget actually exists). So now I can spend more dough on other things, such as:
1. Coffee (an extra coffee a day would be nice)
I'm also looking forward to thinking outside the sartorial box. I have SO many clothes and the possibilities are limitless but generally if I don't know what to wear, I'll just go out and buy something new. This is going to challenge my imagination and sense of style.
*This is a picture of my closet...It's not really representative of all I own. There's also a dresser full of clothes...clothes stored under my bed, accessories in one of my desk drawers and SHOES! In other words, it's obscene.
I will have periodic updates on this!
