I'm a sucker for a good sale so if I like something that's on sale or there's a discount code (hey J. Crew), I'm way more likely to buy it even if I have something very similar in my closet. Going a month without shopping definitely made me realize the amount of impulse purchases I make and hopefully I'll be able to be more mindful of that in the future.
Not shopping for a month saved me so much money. Those little purchases definitely add up over time and not shopping after a few months of doing a lot of shopping helped me to put some more money into my savings account and towards car insurance payments (fun stuff).
It was definitely hard for me to accomplish this goal as I was tempted quite a few times to cheat (thanks amazing Labor Day sales). I somehow pushed through and managed not to cheat at all. But I'm definitely excited for my next trip to the mall ;)
Have you ever done a month without shopping? How did it go? Let me know in the comments!
