I bought some stuff. The things were on sale, but still. Did I need the two pairs of shoes? Even for $24 each? And so comfy? No. But I was in the store and next thing I know, I was buying the shoes. And $8.99 tights.
|Does it make it less bad if the shoes were SO CUTE? And 40% off?|
I feel really guilty about this. I could have not blogged about it, and pretended like this didn't happen, but then I would feel guilty for blog-lying and so I am here to tell you about it.
My first instinct is to say, "To repent, I will no longer buy ANYTHING AT ALL EVER for the REST OF THE YEAR!" But I know this is extreme, and also not possible. I think that I will re-assess my Detox rules in order to eliminate some loopholes, however.
Rather than saying "No full-price clothes, only second-hand or sale clothes," I think that I need to add a line limiting how much I spend per month, e.g.
"No full-price clothes, only second-hand or sale clothes, at a cost of no more than $100 per month."
Is this reasonable? I don't know. But I do know that while I have scaled WAY down on my grocery shopping, I think I've replaced that dollar-for-dollar with sale/thrift clothes shopping.
But like with anything, every day can't be an improvement on the day before. And I think the incredible amount of guilt I feel right now shows an improvement from my previous carefee shopaholic ways.
ONWARD AND UPWARD! And a budget of no more than $100 per month on clothes. And makeup. Clothes and makeup.
That is all.
