ONE HUNDRED DAYS WITHOUT SHOPPING!

I have gone 100 days without buying clothing.  Today officially marks that day.  And to celebrate I will be doing a few give-a-ways this week!  I am so excited to share some of the things that I personally picked out and purchased from my own pocket for my readers.

What do I think about making it 100 days without buying clothing?  Well, I think its amazing!  I never throught I would be able to make it 30 days, let alone 100.  The fact that here I am with 100 days behind me and two more seasons to go, and a whole closet full of stuff I haven't been able to wear yet because I'm waiting for that warmer weather...  So excited.  I definitely don't want to say that I got this in the bag, and yes it is still frustrating when I see an amazing dress on sale and I cannot buy it.  However, there is a huge benefit to just being able to say no.

I just want to shout from the roof tops or something, or just shout...


100 days!!

So, how am I going to celebrate? Well, I am wearing a skirt that I made, so that is a great way to celebrate.  I had hot chocolate before coffee this morning.  And who knows, maybe eat some Mexican food today.

  1. So admirable! My husband and I decided to go on a fairly tight budget this year, and I was shocked at how often I go shopping! It feels good not to spend so much!

  2. Congratulations - are you spending more on anything else? I seem to have channelled my wish to not spend so much on clothes (I'm allowing myself one item or two a month) into spending it on my hobbies. I have so much stuff!

  4. Congrats!
    This is such a neat idea. I'm not sure I will be able to do it though--but I might try.

    Thank you also for your kind words at my blog! I truly appreciate it. I feel the love even though I'm Michigan--thanks for the virtual hug! :)

  6. just reading this made me anxious. i haven't fully dove into your blog, but im assuming youve given up shopping for some fixed period of time. I have been having the hardest problem with clothes shopping as of late. I spent my whole tax return and it left me feeling very sick. So I decided to only allow myself $20 a month to have to play with. But you took it to the max! I am inspired. truly. I will be keeping up on your endeavor.
