I posted earlier this year about my No-Spend Maytember challenge. With the exception of a couple of splurges (yikes, I think I may have narrowly avoided an aerie habit), I’ve been able to avoid the lure of sales pretty well.
Recently, I stumbled upon Levo League’s list of 33 things to stop doing when you turn 30. At #9 is “Buying anything and everything you want when shopping.” So, I guess I am doing something right, after all. Some of the other things on the list seem a little impossible (no fast food…like, ever?) but all in all, I think I will try to adhere to Levo League’s standards for awesomeness.
So, I will continue my no-shopping spree through the rest of 2015 – mostly out of necessity. Instead of browsing the Anthropologie website in a stress-induced stupor every time I have a bad day, I try to distract myself with my less expensive hobbies — catching up on blogs/my favorite TV shows/music, trying out a new recipe, or going for a run. Initially, I thought this challenge would be impossible, but it seems that not shopping-’til-I-drop has been great for my stress levels — and, of course, my bank account.
Bought / avoided buying anything lately?
Have a great day!
