For those of you that know me, you know I love shopping. I’ll admit, I have a slight shopping addiction. I love finding good deals and I have been known time and time again to buy things just because they are on sale, or are under $5.
Since 2017, I have been following a women on Instagram called Meg or @meghall on Instagram. This year she is doing #NoShop19 meaning that she will not be purchasing any clothing, shoes or house related items for herself all of 2019 unless it needs (needs) to be replaced. She has been talking about doing this for a few weeks and it got me to thinking about my slight shopping problem. When I was trying to stuff the new clothes I got for Christmas into my already full drawers I realized that I needed to make a change.
Yesterday I decided to start the New Year off right by cleaning out all of the clothes that I do not wear anymore/ clothes that do not fit me. This lead me to having a massive bag that I was going to donate to goodwill. My mom also suggest that I put some clothes online to sell (stuff that hasn’t been worn, or in good condition) and I did just that.
This year I am going to try to buy less than I do every other year. That means, not going shopping every weekend because I feel like I deserve a treat and instead embracing my (if I say so myself) fabulous wardrobe that I have spent way too much on already. Of course I will probably go shopping while in Europe next week, but I will still have my mindset of buying less and buying only unique pieces, instead of average pieces just because they were a good deal.
I hope that this gives me a new perspective going into 2019 and I hope this year is filled with experiences and memories instead of items.
P.s. If you are looking for some super cheap and cute clothing to start your New Year off right you can follow me @libbeyjeanscloset on Instagram to see the pieces I am selling!
