With the fabric stash analysis and my wish to reduce this clutter I accumulated, another thing ca,e to my eye:
I shop to much! -.-'I do have a full wardrobe with lots of stuff in it. I do cull my wardrobe now and then and always find stuff I don't wear anymore. I do have a lot of jewelry, but most of the time only wear my watch and maybe some simple studs in my ears. I do have more than ten pairs of fake lashes and wear them maybe twice a year. Not to mention my huge collection of eye shadows and nail polishes...
To put it simple, I'd like to try an experiment. No shopping of unnecessary stuff. If I need underwear or socks, shampoo or soap or any other hygienic product, I can buy that. Otherwise, I really think I should realise I don't need any more stuff.
- Go through the wardrobe and make a catalogue. Does anyone have a good program for this? or maybe an app?
- Sew clothes myself. I'm capable of this and I have a lot of patterns at home. As well as a lot of fabric!
- As I said, hygienic stuff will be bought new
- Keep a tab of all the stuff I didn't buy. Save a picture, write down the price and see how much I saved...
- buy fabric - Unless I need it for WGT
- buy basics because "You can always wear basics"
- Shirts with nice prints. I don't wear them much besides in the gym. And who needs more than 10 gym shirts?
- shopping out of frustration or boredom
- "I do have this coupon" shopping
- online shopping
- No new eye shadows, fake lashes or nail polishes. Absolutely none!
I also have a good goal for the money I'll save: I'm going to New Zealand this fall and will need a serious financial cushion for this. To enter the country, one has to have some money in the bank account. Add that to the costs for flight and living and I'll be grateful for every cent I saved...
Is anyone in with me?
