WIWW: Plaid Scarf + Link Up

Wednesday, January 1, 2014

Today is the day. Today is one year since I started my resolution of no shopping. What a year it has been and I am proud to show off some items that Santa brought me! 

The scarf and grey long-sleeved tee are from Gap and bought with our points from our Banana Republic credit card, so even Santa was a savvy shopper. These Sperry boots were heavily on sale because of a store going out of business. I was thrilled to help Santa out and save him a trip to the mall.

Now that it is all said and done, moving forward I have decided to continue with some sort of shopping freeze. I have been tossing around some ideas and I am thinking of allowing me one item per month. And, if I don't buy anything in January, then that means for February I can buy two things! And so on...

I haven't confirmed that idea, but I know that I will not ever (I pray) be able to go back to the shopaholic that I was. I have grown in so many ways that this resolution truly changed me!

So, here's to having a healthy, happy, and wonderful new year!

  1. YOU MADE IT!!! So proud of you sweet friend. You have inspired me to do the same and I'm excited to see what comes from my savings. I will be linking up from now on as I take on this challenge. Be ready for lots of texts. hehe Happy 2014!

  2. Happy New Year Sarah! Seriously I am so impressed and inspired by your no shopping challenge. I don't think I could do it! How did you avoid temptation to shop? (I think unsubscribing from store emails would definitely help, but I read so many fashion blogs I get in trouble!) I really like the idea of purchasing one item a month...that would be a BIG challenge in itself! You probably mentioned this earlier, but did gifts or gift card purchases count?

  3. Good for you! I would never be able to do this. Good luck for 2014. I bet you can keep your resolution.
