Shopping to Saving for Six Months
I think it great everyone is showing their success on social media of their latest purchase or accomplishments which I think is great. However as much as that is great to look at I know I will not be going out every single week to purchase the latest anything. I’ve actually always been like this and it’s because I don’t like having a lot of stuff; I just don’t care for it. I’ve learned early thanks mom to buy good quality items because it last longer (investment). I have a goal of going on a shopping freeze for the rest of the year. I’m going to allocate the funds towards savings because I have goals to meet and debt to pay off. That also means only one trip for me this year via plane. What I’ll be showing on my YouTube is how I put together outfits using the clothes I have in my closet.
I started doing this last year as part of my Shop My Closet Series (SMCS) but I was still purchasing pieces here and there. However this time around from April to October I’ll be on a shopping freeze. I’m even taking it a bit further by not spending on the following; unplanned taxis, eating out or unnecessary household products. I know this can work because, last year I paid off close to 5k in credit cards. I’ve realized if I don’t do something with my habits now, I’ll be back in that predicament.

Don’t lose heart ladies this will be great. I’m excited to see what I come up with. My intentions is that I will always look polished, on trend and chic.
