|This is how I felt when I realized what I had done!!!|
Well, it has been a few weeks and I wanted to give you all an update on how I am coping with the onslaught of holiday adverts and deals on GORGEOUS dresses filling my inbox daily...
Except for a few Halloween costume items and a flannel shirt for a Flannel Party I have succeeded in not shopping.
|Respect the Flannel people!|
I won't lie it has been HARD! The lure of a new sweater at Target or an email from Banana tempting me with sales of 40% off has been hard to push aside. There have been some good things that have come out of this though and I thought I would share with you all the good and the bad of a shopping freeze.
- Cleaning out my closet
- Finding old treasures!
- Creating new looks for myself
- No new holiday treats for my closet
- Fighting the urge to lie to you all and just buy this dress or this top
- Creating new looks for events/holiday parties
Like I said in my original post I have more than enough clothes for one city girl. That being said, I love the hunt for a sale and getting that perfect deal. This might be the hardest part of the entire challenge. I really think I shopped for the hunt of the bargain rather than the actual clothing itself...
Anyone else crazy enough to try this out or another personal challenge for the holiday season?
