The Spending Freeze


Before I say anything, there is a tumblr (HERE) that is all stripes and I think I may have died and gone to heaven. It. Is. Divine! 

And moving on!

I've decided something pretty big. I am not going to buy any article of clothing for myself
until I graduate. I know...

I'm one of those people who loves shopping and uses it as a great pick-me-up. 
Especially when I am here in Tucson, I shop quite a bit because I use the excuses like "Ugh it's so hot and I have nothing to wear for this weather!" or "I just need one more tank top because that's all I can wear!!" (so melodramatic) 

But I'm taking a vow. You know all those bloggers doing capsule collections? Well I'm kind of going to do that but with everything I already own. This is going to be hard but I know I am going to want 
my money to go towards food and going out with friends this semester and not wasting it
all on new clothes. 

Phew. I can't believe I'm actually making a post about this and am going to do it.
But there it is. It's decided. 
No shopping for me. 

Have you done something similar before??

Sometimes I
like to take a month and do a shopping cleanse.
It helps me to keep in mind what’s actually important in life and also
forces me to come up with new ways to wear what I already have!

I love that you do it regularly! It really is the best way to come up with new ways to style the clothes already in your closet!

I really need to do this! I'm graduating in December so that's actually a great goal point for me too! I get into the impulse buy mode and just throw everything in the cart! It's a curse!
