Over the last few weeks I have learned to controll my shopping habits tramindously. I dont have to shop all the time to enjoy my self or get the look Im going for. I am so excited to be able to shop without grabing eerything off the shelf. My closet is begining to look more organized and less cluttered. Life is not about materialistic things. Its about charishing the things that you have and using them to your advantage. I have also learned how to wear old things in a new way to present a new and flattering look. This experience was hard for me I am not going to lie, but I enjoyed the idea of a commitment and achieving a goal. I am glade to be able to shop for new things though. With the summer here I have got to get some cute sandles, and as soon as I go home i am going to buy tones of accessories. I believe that shopping by category will alow me to be a more organized shope instead of just buying what i see.
One more week of no shopping and I cant wait. I know that everytime I go into a store now Im going to hesitate to purchase things because of how long Ive been on detox. But there are some really cute things that I am definately going to rush out and buy before they are gone. Summer is almost here and I have tones of room for new and trendy stuff. Since I have been on detox not only have I not been shopping but I have also gotten rid of a lot of clothes that I dont wear. I donated them to the salvation army and it felt good to give back to the community and spring clean my closet. My sister said I could have just saved them for when we have our garage sale before we move this summer. But I think they will go to better use if I donate them. I really havent been anywhere this week to need anything clothing wise so this week as been ok. And I also know that I am one week closer to being free so that is definatley my motivation at this moment. Have a great week!
OMG I could not find anything to wear for presentation. I was already nervouse and I wasnt sure if I was going for the right look. Finally since it was cold i decide to wear slcaks and a button up. But behold no shoes to go with it ugh. So my sister had the bright idea of wearing my close toe shoes with fur on them. It looked fine and my pants covered my fur. But soon as I got to school and walked around it wanted to keep showing ugh I was so frustrated but I made it through. I dont it bothered anyone but me but it just made my week Well as for to see what happens this week with no shopping.
Another friday out with the girls made my week once again. They each had bought me something to add to my wodrobe as a suprise this time. I was so excited I felt like a little kid on christmas. Since I could go shopping with them they decided they would just get me what they thought Id like. I was bumed because we ended up just staying in and watching movies but as soon as i get the chance im going to rock my accessories and new outfit! They always make fun of me saying i better not catch you shopping knowing that this is one of our main hobbies. Im just glad that we were all able to adjust to the change without changing our friendship any. These girls are the best I owe them big time.Well as for another week of no shopping what will be brought to the table?Cant wait to hear some new ideas..
friday night is girls night for me and my friends. this last friday i was so tired i didnt plan on doing anything but cooking since it hwas my turn. but the girls where not having that. since i didnt plan on going any where i surely did not find anything to wear. my friends love the idea of swaping clothes and accessories.so this time they broight over like three or four items a piece and wr just went forbit…
This week was nothing spectacular, I worked a lot and had a lot of school work to catch up on this week. I really didnt have time to shop or even think about shopping. I also noticed that I have a lot of clothes that I dont even wear. They are just taking up space and crowding my closet. I went through them and took out the thing that I thought were cute and piled the rest up to be donated to salvation army or something. So far I have been putting together some cute outfits and getting compliments. Now that I actually have to put effort into getting dressed I have been having more creative ideas. I am so proud of myself I didnt think that I would even make it this far without buying something or needing anything. As for another week I am standing strong.
just another week of no shopping. my girls tried to take me with them to the topeka mall but i refused to go. burlington is a big no no lol everytime i go in there i spend a lot of money. but i stayed at home and caught up on some rest insteas. so glad my pockets still fat too ha im saving a tone!
O man I had a horrible week of no shopping. Monday I went home to visit family and planed on leaving later that day because I had to work the next day. After all my visiting was over I was on my way to take my best friend home when the car broke down on the highway. I was greatful that it did so while il was still in town to get help. But what do you know now im stuck in kc with not a change of clothes. normally this would not be a problem i would just go buy something to wear but because of the detox i was stuck in a sticky situation. most of my friends back home are small and petite so borrowing somthing from them was out of question. Luckly i caught up with my cousin and was able to raid her closet for a few items but hr pants were still too small. so i eventually found a pair of leggings and her little sister gave me the idea to wear a ripped shirt. She said that she does it all the time its in style lol. So thats what i wore for the day and spiced it up with some of her accessories. The outfit turned out ok and my car was fixed by the next morning but this experience definitely opened my eyes and creative mind.
I am feeling ke a new person now days. its hard to keep up with my friends and family in our competitive dressing habits. Every event, birthday, holiday ect. I am acustom to purchasing new things even if its just an accessorie. But lately I have not bought anything and it feels amazing. I still get compliments daily and it boost my confindents. A friend of mine has shown me how to make earings in the oven it is so cool. I havent got a chance to make any yet but watching her is motivating me to. well I guess its off to another shopless week!
Last week was a rough detox for me. All of my friend wanted to shop shop shop. It started off with finding something green for fake patty day. Everyone had planned on going to the mall to find something cute. I had to turn the invitation down because I knew that I would not last if I went. My friends as well as myself where very upset about it. But they pitched in and got me a cute green shirt and suprised me with it latter. But they then made it worse by telling me how many sells they ran into lol. As I struggled throughout the week not to buy things I watched my friends go crazy buying clothes shoe accessories ect. IT WAS TORTURE…but i made it through another week yet again!
