Joslyn over at Simple Lovely is kicking off her annual spending hiatus again... and this time, I'm joining in! I am really feeling the need to reset my spending habits. When you are planning a wedding sometimes it feels like all you do is write checks (really big, scary checks) and to top it all off... I'm back in school again, sans paycheck.
So here's the deal... no unnecessary purchases for two months. What constitutes unnecessary you ask? Well, it's different for everyone but for me, it means no more popping into Target for toothpaste and leaving with a shopping cart full of bargain footwear. No more stopping by my beloved Anthropologie, just to see what's on sale.
I think it's going to be really great to rediscover what I already have. My mom is a firm believer in "shopping your own closet" and getting creative with what you own. If I am tempted to buy something frivolous, I'm going to write it down in a notebook. At the end of the hiatus I will revisit the list and see if those items I was dying to have are actually well thought out purchases, or just passing fancy.
*I'm so excited to see how this will go... let me know if you are joining in too!
