Operation: No Shopping!


If people know nothing about me they know that I loveeeeee shopping! I even consider it to be one of my hobbies LOL. Yes, I am proud to say that I am a shopaholic with no shame at all! I have loved shopping my entire life and I earned that honestly because my mother and my aunts love shopping as well. Some of my fondest memories as a child was when I go out with my mom and my aunts and we literally would shop until we dropped LOL. Although shopping is my favorite pastime I am challenging myself to only shop once a month until March. This may sound like an easy thing to do but being that I shop whenever I want to it will definitely be a hard task. I don’t have to do this challenge but I want to see if I have the willpower to do it and to avoid the temptation that I always get to go shopping. I also want to see how much money that I can save by doing this challenge.

The challenge:

ImageRule #1 will definitely be a struggle for me because I have a serious problem giving up my clothes. I love all of my clothes and it doesn’t matter if they still have the tags on them after having the items forever or clothes that I forget that I had. Either way I still loathe parting way with my clothes. No, that does not mean that I hoard my clothes either! I do clean out my closest once a year and donate what I am no longer wearing.

Rule #2 will be the death of me! I have never beat the temptation to not shop.

Rule #3 & #4… I will be asking myself: Do I need this? Me: YES. Ultimately I don’t need what I buy but I buy it because I like it.

Rule #5: I WILL reach my goal! To see how much money I can save and not giving into temptation buy shopping more than once in a month.

I will be beginning this challenge next week… Wish me luck!
