As I mentioned in this previous post, I have made a pledge to not buy any clothes for a month and a half. In an attempt to limit my frivolous spending to save for more meaningful things (specifically, a big trip in the middle of February), I wanted to ban clothes shopping for the month of January through mid February.
When I realized how many items I love in my closet that I do not wear often or items I forget about due to the plethora of options combined with the astounding amount I spent on clothes every month (thanks Mint.com), I knew it was time for a detox.
So far so good, I have yet to buy any clothes in 2013! Having this extra little bit of savings is helping me to reach one of my goals...
I realized the other day, I would rather have a world of experiences than a world of things. Don't get me wrong, I won't stop shopping but in the end its more important for me to build memories rather than hoard items.
