Anyways, going into this year I felt confident that I had changed and wouldn't go back to my old ways. Well, just like any addiction, I could feel myself falling back into my old habits. I'd see something semi-cute on sale and somehow it made itself into my cart. I still stick to my "carry it in your cart for at least 15 minutes" rule and, thankfully, before I checked out, I realized that bright pink floral pants, although cute, were not me. I was buying them strictly because they were $9.98 on sale at Target. And because they are trendy...can't forget that part.
No I haven't gone crazy, and I really haven't spent much of my own money at all. I had birthday money that I ended up buying things for the house, but I did buy some dresses at Ross. Then I returned some of them and bought tennis shoes instead. #truth. Tennis shoes are me, and I know I will get tons of wear out of them.
So, going forward, my friend Brianne mentioned last week that she was going to do a #noshopfor60 challenge. I guess technically started it last week, but if anyone would like to join in on the money-saving fun, let me know! It helps to have others to confide in and I am planning on doing a 30 for 30 challenge soon as well! (30 articles of clothing for 30 days)
Sometimes we try things and we fail. In this case, I am catching myself before I head back down the bright and shiny path of being a shopaholic! Here's to shopping my closet ad remixing what I already have!
