- To remix my closet to the best of my ability. Trying out new combinations and permutations. And remind myself why I loved the pieces I bought in the first place.
- To save money that I would otherwise spend on shopping that is not always necessary, frequently emotional, and hopefully have the funds available to move.
- Relearn self control. I went from a person who agonized over buying a $10 dress or $4 pair of thrifted pants, but can now drop money on a new pair of shoes without blinking.
- To indulge in crafting with materials I already have acquired or acquire at thrifty prices.
Have you ever had to go on a clothing shopping ban? Any tips or tricks to curbing the urge? I'll definitely be taking notes from this post by Sal of Already Pretty who is also in a similar shopping slow down. I don't have time defined limit on this ban, but I'm also hoping that as the winter season comes to a close, I will assess my winter-wear, remove worn out pieces and happily reunite with my summer storage.
