If I had another month like March, I was going to be broke in no time, or using credit cards again, and definitely wouldn't have any money for Europe. Not to mention an unhappy husband, and really - an unhappy Kristen. I don't want to be that girl.
I have been working on my shopping issues for a long time, it seems. I have finally started to learn what looks good on me (in my opinion), what feels good and what I enjoy wearing. I have made smarter purchases over the last few months with the intention of one day being able to have a closet full of things that I love and actually wear. Problem was that in order to replace the clothes I didn't like, were falling apart, or looked horrible on me took time and money. But I think I am finally there. I have a solid work wardrobe, and enough 'fun' clothes to get me through the rare times I wear such clothes.
So without further ado, I present to you the things I bought in April:
- No clothes.
- No books.
- No house stuff.
- Really, no house stuff.
- No makeup.
- No shoes.
- No accessories.
- Nary a stitch fix.
- No online shopping.
- Plenty of window shopping.
- No 'it's only $10' justifications.
- No 'its 50% off! so I have to' justifications.
- Nothing but necessary groceries.
- Not a single purchase.
Plenty of self high fives though.
Cross that off your 30 before 30 and smoke it. Or something like that.
I did buy one thing using swagbucks amazon $$ (which I ended up returning anyway) and I did eat Jimmy Johns once but I didn't have anything else and I was starving. I would still say I succeeded though! What do you think?
