Abstaining from shopping for 40 days.
This started out as a conversation between @patriciayee and myself about the joys of eBaying. The thrill I get from eBay is creating value out of things no longer being used, as well as getting rid of clutter. During this conversation Patricia rightly (or righteously) pointed out that I would have less clutter “that still has it’s original tags on” if I would just stop buying things I don’t need. Originally, I scoffed at the idea, but then decided that I needed a personal challenge of the moment. So in protest of adult overalls becoming a fashion trend again and in honor of @patriciayee’s birthday, I take a vow to not buy any non-essentials for the next 40 days.
Things you need to know about me before knowing the difficulty of this challenge.
- Every morning I wake up at 7:30am and online shop for at least an hour before going to work.
- Pinterest is my bff.
- Essentials… I overbuy almost everything including essentials. Costco is another one of my bffs (I might be a bff whore). The rule thus ended up being, only buy what you absolutely need and not in bulk.
Here goes nothing, let’s see how well I do.
