I used to befall the shopping rut of occasionally perusing sale items, and then buying things that were “cheap” but not necessarily what I had been looking for. Later, I would find things that I REALLY wanted (like a good solid white tee) but couldn’t justify buying it for full price.
I decided to get out of that rut and start planning out what I really wanted or was lacking in my closet (AKG would say nothing is lacking in my closet, but he would say that even if I had literally 1 pair of pants and a shirt).
So at the back of my handy dandy planner, I wrote a list that went something like this:
- good white tee
- swimsuit with solid straps
- comfy black flats (my current ones have holes in the soles -_-)
This way, I’m able to walk away from all those “good deals” that I didn’t really need, and save that $$ to snatch up what I’m really wanting, whether it’s on sale or not. Like my life’s motto (that I’m constantly trying to live up to): Quality Over Quantity; or in other words more quality, less clutter.
And guess what… after months on the list, I found that swimsuit with sturdy straps!
