So it has been a week since I started my challenge not to purchase any clothing, shoes, accessories, and home decor items and I must say so far so good. I have not bought one single item on the list! (*insert applause*) My husband and mother are very surprised at my self control especially since they were the main ones doubting me! So to them I say ha! in your face LOL! I have 3 more weeks to go. If this week is any indication of how the next 3 weeks will go, I think I will pass this challenge with flying colors! I think it has been rather  easy due to the fact that I have devoted the time that I would be shopping to catching up on reading, hobbies, cleaning and organizing and other random tasks. It seems as long as I stay busy I don’t seem to really mind staying away from stores. Maybe the reason for my shopping addiction was simply boredom!  Who knew???

Any who I will keep you all updated on my progress during the next few weeks. The real test will be when I go back to my hometown to visit my family and also when I go on my mini vacation to FL with my mom. We shall see 🙂

Until next post,
