Well the day finally arrived. I never thought I would make it but here I am: 40 days without having made a single clothing or cosmetics purchase. Obvious question to follow would be something like: how do you feel? Are you a better person for it? Will you go shopping now that this task is over? Answers are: fantastic, yes and of course!
I assumed shoptox would be difficult. After all, I read magazines constantly, work in downtown Montreal where pretty much any store is a few steps away and I work for magazines. My entire surrounding environment screams buy me! And yet, I was able to resist.
With this shopt tox comes a few advantages: I was able to save some money. I also feel like my mind is clear of some clutter. I have less in my closet and therefore getting ready in the morning is that much easier. With the step back I have taken from constant shopping, I now have a clearer idea of what I will want to purchase next time I hit the stores (i.e.: ASAP). Seriously, this shoptox is good and all, but girl needs a new going out top for this weekend! Later ;)
