Add to Cart

I can’t begin to tell you how many times in the last month I have added various things in to my online cart. I look at the cart, excited to buy the items, and then I remember I already have one or two of the same things and I close my browser and go back to reading my book. 

There was a sale at Bloomingdales for makeup. They only have it once a year. It’s the perfect time to stock up on products I typically use. I must have visited the website 5-6 times in the week the promos were running. I just couldn’t do it. I have back up for my back up. I’m still trying to use up all my mascara. If I didn’t hate washing face so much I’d probably have gone through most of my make up. Lazy wins all of the time.  

Then there are shoes. All the great sales are happening this week. The sales will only get better the first week of the New Year. Oh the shoes! 

I am fighting the good fight daily. Trying to keep myself in check. I’m not as strict as I was the last time I did this. I’m giving myself until January 1 to get back on the plan. Hard line in the sand. 
I can do this…right?


About noshopping4me

I want to test my will power to see if I could go 15 months without retail therapy (groceries and toiletries exempt). I am going to not buy anything until December 31, 2017. NO SHOES! I know if I put my mind to it I can do anything, but this endeavor is going to take great will power. No one I told about this plan believes I can do it. Which makes me want to do it more. As a good friend once told me…the force is strong within me. I know I can do this! When I look at everything I have, I realize I don’t really need anything more. I probably have 2-3 of everything. So I am going to just use what I have and not get more.I am going to list all the things I really want to buy and at the end of 2017 I will tally up all the money I saved myself.
