It always starts over a few drinks and a friend saying something like “yeah I am going to try not to buy any new clothes for the entire year of 2019”. Usually you would think in your head that your friend is a little crazy and that’s why you love them. But I’ve had a few drinks..so the idea seems like the best one ever, and I’m all like “hold my drink..let’s do this”. My competitive nature also kicks in to say..oh yeah..you are totally winning this challenge. Even though there is literally no prize because you can’t spend money. 💰
I guess the prize is keeping my decluttered closet decluttered and probably truck loads of time and money saved not going to Target for “batteries”. Why with another crazy challenge Mindy? Didn’t you JUST clean out your closet and don’t you really NEED new things now? Two simple answers 1) NO I don’t NEED anything new and TBH..I do NOT really enjoy shopping that much 2) I do enjoy being debt free and I’m so close to that finish 🏁 I can almost taste it, so I need some fuel to get me across that line.
So you heard it here first. I, Mindy Templeton, of sound mind and body, promise that for the entire 365 days of 2019, I will not buy any clothes or accessories, so no shoes, purses, jewelry, etc. I only have 355 days left right?! Wish me luck 😉
