As I spent an entire sunny Sunday afternoon holed up in my closet putting away laundry and sorting through clothes, I realize that I probably have enough clothes, shoes, and accessories to dress a dozen women. Maybe more.
I have clothes in four different sizes from three different decades. I have shoes I haven’t worn since high school. I have jewelry that seemingly appeared out of thin air. I have clothes that still have the tags on them. I have to buy more hangers every time I go to Target.
So, I’ve lost my mind and decided that I’m taking a sabbatical. A shopping sabbatical. And I want you to join me. Mainly so I have someone to
bitch to commiserate with.
Here’s what I’m proposing:
3 months of no shopping. Today through August 1st. No new clothes, shoes, or accessories.
I clearly don’t need anything and I don’t really want anything (shocking, I know), so I’m going to take these three months to dig around in my closet and see exactly what is in there. Wear new combinations, see what fits, and take some risks.
Oh, and save some money.
Will you join me?
Please say yes.
