As mentioned in the blog posts seen here and here, I’m trying my best not to “break the bank”. Sticking to New Year resolutions can be difficult, but I’m determined to not give up. Don’t get me wrong, I know there is NO WAY that I can cut out shopping all together but I’ll give it a shot…
I’m featuring pieces today that I’ve had for more than year (minus the purse, which was gifted). I know it sounds silly, but whenever I go out for a special occasion, I tend to have the urge to buy a new outfit. Thanks to my resolution, I decided not to make a trip to the mall and “shop in my closet” instead. I ended up finding these ripped denims that I had forgotten about… (pics seen below and they were UNDER $40 – I’ve linked some that are similar if you’re in the need of buying a new pair).
For the most part, I consider myself a “budget friendly” consumer, however, I can make adjustments to my spending habits when necessary. For example, instead of going to the mall on my lunch break I’ll go to Starbucks to read or work on my blog. This is difficult for me because the mall is extremely close to my office.
Another task that I’ve been meaning to accomplish, is cleaning out my closet. I know by doing this I’ll find random pieces of clothing that I had forgotten about – which is almost as satisfying as shopping right?! Well…maybe not, but at least it’s saving me money and I’m sticking to one of my goals this year.
How are you doing with your New Year resolutions? Please share, I would love to know!
