No More Shopping!

I’m going on vacation! I’m exhausted from packing, exhausted from the lead up, and all I can think about is sleeping on the plane and eventually seeing the sun. We’ve had a rainy stretch these last few days and I’m over it.9398206391_06effde0cf

As I packed my suitcase, filling it with the sundry of new purchases I’d made for the trip, I realized how many clothes I have that I never wear. I work from home and I like to be comfortable. For me, that means workout wear and tennis shoes most days (and not particularly nice workout wear). So why did I go out and buy more new clothes I’ll barely wear?

Good question.

The good news is that I’m a bargain shopper so nothing was terribly expensive. The bad news is it’s time to clean out my closet and give some clothes to charity.

The moral of this post is more a reminder to myself: instead of buying new clothes I probably don’t need, I should shop in my closet for all the hardly worn treasures I once thought I couldn’t live without.

Happy Spring!

  1. I feel the same way but about “winter” clothes. I out off buying some until the last couple of years because it had been mild.

  2. I’m not a clothes shopper either, Christy, but somehow there’s still rarely or never worn clothes to week out of the closet. I cleaned mine out last fall, and it was wonderful to donate the clothes to organizations that need them.

    Happy vacation. Enjoy the sunshine!

  3. I get such a “high” from bargain shopping! Very satisfying.

    Right now you should be on vacation? I hope it’s everything you need it to be!
