I am planning to go on a shopping moratorium until Christmas. No particular reason, just to see what it feels like to not be shopping. I’ve been a bit over-obsessed with getting everything in my home and wardrobe “just right” lately, and I want to see if I can break that so I can focus on other things I want to do.
Exceptions to the no shopping ban:
- Groceries, household necessities, replacing anything that breaks
- Previously planned purchases (i.e., intentional shopping to fit a need)
- Books! (but I will use the library more and try to read through what I have)
- Experiences — spend my money on doing rather than acquiring
This post is to help keep me honest. I’ll post updates.
