Once when reading one of the Shopaholic series of books I was impressed by a budget idea the main character employed. To prove that she needed all of the clothing in her closet she made herself wear every piece she owned before buying anything new. To her emabrassment she found all sorts of things in her closet with price tags that she’d never worn and thus couldn’t shop for quite a while. Guilty! I am wearing a sweater and scarf today that I have owned for some time, but a friend had to point out the tag hanging from the scarf I’d forgotten to remove. If I made myself stick to that “no new until all worn” idea I’d have a pretty long stretch of no new. And when I say new I would have to include the vintage and thrifted. Perish the thought, friends. I am going to shop my closet for the rest of the month and try like mad to ignore the sales.
Still had tags, sweater from Target and scarf
Thrifted skirt, Go International
Vintage purse, clogs Lotta from Stockholm
