I am feeling pretty strong in my stance against shopping. Don’t get my wrong though, I am SO ready to be able to shop again! The challenge has impacted my creativity by forcing me to look at what I actually have in my closet differently and use those items in new and exciting ways. There is ALWAYS temptation to shop no doubt but again like every other week, i resist. It hasn’t really effected how I feel around others, i basically feel like the same person…well my strategy to stop shopping is to just keep my eye on the goal of this whole experiment, I don’t like losing. Well, I get my creative energy out by making new outfits out of my old clothes and crafting a lot.
