Once again, I’ve spent ZERO DOLLARS on clothes this past month — and this time, by choice and with intent! At the beginning of the month, I joined the “Let’s Be Shop Free for 3” challenge and Facebook group. The “3” in this stance stands for three months, so it’s a challenge to be shop free (regarding clothes shopping) from May through July. The group and challenge is organized by Carrie @ A Lovely Little Wardrobe.
As y’all now know I’m in the midst of moving and packing for our move to Tacoma, it’s been (surprisingly?) pretty easy to stick to this challenge. There’s been no time to shop and no inclination to add to the packing! I also have appreciated the openness fellow bloggers have been with their experiences, sharing their thoughts about shopping and their own personal motivations or reasons for shopping urges.
While packing up my clothes and shoes, I also took the opportunity to reevaluate some items. I’ll be back with more details about the bags of clothing items I will be donating shortly.
Total spent for this month: $0
Total savings for this month: $0
Total spent for this year: $82.47
Total savings for this year: $377.98
Let’s see how I do for the challenge next month!
