kat and i are almost a month into our challenge and i’ve had some time on my hands this week, so i thought it was a good time to write down my thoughts thus far.
it hasn’t been as hard as i thought it would be to not buy anything and only remix my own closet. granted, i am only 1/12th of the way through, but i haven’t had any big urges to shop (except for one day i had to open at the attic but i made myself stay away from the clothing racks and it wasn’t that bad!) and i’ve honestly felt inspired by what’s in my closet. (not going to lie- pinterest really helps with that as well as several style blogs i’ve found as a result. especially this one.)
added bonus: there are still lots of winter looks i’ve got floating around in my mind so i’m ok with the season lingering around in texas for a while. (especially because it’s nothing like the winters i grew up with. 50-60 degrees beats negative 7 every time.)
the most difficult thing so far has been to earmark the money that i would have spent on myself if i had gone clothes shopping. it was tempting to spend my extra cash on a date night with troy. i think this month i’ll go back and look at my 2011 budget and see exactly what i spent, then use that number as a base for what i would have spent this year.
until february, my friends! (just kidding. i’ll see you tomorrow.)
