This past May I made my last purchases of shoes and this past June for clothes. For the last items which I am showing to you, some of these are not even from my pocket. I have been working for some goals lately, in fact, I have a job now and am taking an educational classes. My husband started a business with me and pretty much, I am the "Visionary" (the person who sees the big picture) and the "Deck Swabber" (the person who does most of the work) of our ship. This is a hard job to begin with because I have to do most of the day to day task and the business requires a certain passion and focus. At the same time, we are also looking to buy a house that will give us more room and no neighbors, and we further need a truck for my husband so he can load our needs for the new place.
Now you know and understand that shopping for my clothes and shoes is not one of my priorities right now. Three months is my preparation time period and devotion to these important goals is paramount. I am not feeling bad, I've still got lots of never worn reserves in my closet and they are actually more of a hoarding situation than something I usually wear. The only exception I will consider from my spending abstinence are the maintenance needs for my hair, foot spa and my dermatologist.
Victoria's Secret always has given me a comfortable feel, it's almost like wearing nothing. Their underwear are excellent even for the sporty days. I don't usually use fragrances and lipsticks, but just in case, I needed some for an occasion...I bought these so I would have an immediate back-up.
Crafts Warehouse had a clearance on Christmas stickers ($4.99 only 1.99, the rest are 99cents!) and I am finishing my first Christmas scrapbook album, so, might as well buy while they are having their best deal on them! My husband purchased most of this for me!
This jewelry designer "slash" fashionista of Little Witches/ Tiny Wizards named Dimi sent me
these wonderful and memorable handmade jewelries for a give-away prize which I won!
Elegantly boxed comes a beautiful and tempting post card with it, making me want to visit Greece!
Here's a bunch of hand-me-down books from my husband's niece, Rachel..she took some college literature classes and does a lot of reading for college. I couldn't be any more thankful for such a gift....
Lastly, both of these books costs $80.00, my husband got them for me for only $15.00
at the Marion County Fair and still brand new! Can't beat that price.
Have you abstained, or thought of abstaining
for shopping at all for more than 30 days?
Tell me your HORROR stories!!!!
