In the midst of making a household budget for 2014, I made the shocking realization that a lot of my personal money goes to shopping! Purchasing clothing, shoes, and accessories have become a habit in recent years but it is one that I plan to break in the new year. Beginning on January 1, 2014, I will be on a 5 (yes count it 1,2,3,4,5) month challenge to go without shopping for clothing, shoes, and accessories. Ya’ll pray for me! I know it will be difficult but I am going to work extremely hard to keep my money in the bank next year. I have identified that I shop when I am bored. I plan to keep myself busy during these next 5 months so that I won’t even have time to think about spending money.
Of course I’m certain that I will go through the “I have nothing to wear” phase during this journey so I came up with a few fashion challenges for myself to hopefully combat this misconception as well.
If you would like to join in on either of these challenges (money saving or wardrobe remix), please leave me a comment below. If you don’t plan to join in on either challenge, please pin this challenge to Pinterest and share the love.
What is one of your goals for the new year?
