Just a little note to celebrate that I made it through the month of January without buying any new clothes and I made it by the skin of my teeth.
I nearly bought something on Saturday afternoon, I was *this* close. So very very close. So close that if I hadn’t had a doubt about whether or not the item was on sale, I would have bought it.
But I didn’t. So, although I do not have a brand new kelly green pashmina to wear in February, I can say, that hurray, I have kept to my resolution for one whole month.
Sure, I have two pairs of boots out to be repaired and I have stood in front of my closet and my mirror and said, “ugh, I have nothing to wear.” Sure, today I hate my outfit because it is made up of a bunch of things I haven’t worn in years and don’t really go together very well. But I haven’t bought anything.
(I need to stop thinking about that exquisite kelly green pashmina. I need to stop thinking about that kelly green pashmina. MUST STOP….)
A new month is a new start. Thankfully February is a short month. I can look forward to a little celebratory post on March 1. I do like to celebrate. Plus, I have planned a real celebration if I can make it through to March 31. I am 1/3 of the way there!! Yay!!!
