Yes, dear Spruce reader, I am embarking on a “no-shop challenge” until April. Over the past year, I have come to the realization that I probably own way too many clothes. Don’t get me wrong here: I still think there are probably about 6 things I could think of off the top of my head that I would luuuurve in my cupboard but I’ve actually reached maximum capacity in cupboard space in my house!
So here are the rules:
• No clothes shopping until April. Should you catch me in a mall on the weekend greedily clutching a Witchery or H&M bag; please report me!
• No shoe purchases until April. No heels, no pumps, no “these were on sale shoes”.
• No accessories purchases. Gulp!
Apart from the wardrobe space conundrum I find myself in, I also think it will be beneficial for me to re-evaluate what really lurks in my wardrobe before buying more. I am already three-and-half weeks into my ‘cleanse’ and already am considering different options of what to wear to the office; it will certainly be interesting to see how I am feeling about this pledge come March.
The largest part of why I am killing the shopping for the next few months is really to help me save some moola as the building of our new house commences this month (eeeeeek!). Moreover, in wanting to live a simpler life it surely means de-cluttering… and getting rid of what I don’t need in my wardrobe. So here goes – three full months of no shopping; let’s see if I can make it!
P.s I tried to convince Ilaria to join me on this challenge – she intelligently declined – which made me think: Am I mad??? So tell us what you would do, by voting in the poll below:
