On the whole, I felt this was a good experience to show just how much shopping permeates our lives.  I will definitely think more about what I purchase in the future and whether or not I actually need it, or I just have a passing fancy for something.  It will be nice to have a thoughtful wardrobe, instead of one made up of bits and pieces of whatever.

I also have a new appreciation for stores like Plato’s Closet or Rockstar and Rogers.  Items don’t have to be brand new to be appreciated.  In fact, I sometimes only get one use out of something I buy new because it shrinks so badly, and I wouldn’t have to worry about that if I buy used.
