So since I have been shopping pretty regularly for the past few weeks, I am challenging myself not to shop during the month of July. Shocking I know! My friends and family do not think I can pull it off but I believe I can with a little creativity. I have agreed not to buy any clothing, shoes, accessories, or even home goods for the entire month. They are betting that I will fail (how sad of them to doubt me LOL) but I believe that this challenge will allow me to really utilize what I already have and hopefully teach me that less is more if you know how to work it! So this is my last week of shopping and then I will be going cold turkey for 31 whole days!! But I will succeed by any means necessary-even if that means handcuffing my hands behind my back so that I can’t surf the internet for deals, hiding my car keys so I can’t drive to my nearest mall, or even hiding my bank cards! Yes…it’s that serious! I’m curious to see how much money I will be able to save by limiting my spending to necessities only. Stay tuned for the results.

I will be posting some helpful tips for maintaining my sanity throughout this process. I don’t think it will be as hard for me as my family thinks. I have lots of hobbies to keep me busy. I would love it if some of you would join in this challenge with me! We could have our own little shopaholics support group going on the blog. Leave a comment down below to let me know if you wan’t to join in or just simply cheer me on ūüôā


Talk to you soon,

I set a 90 day challenge…found the first two weeks to be the hardest.
Looking forward to seeing how you go!
