I’ve wanted to get smarter with my spending habits. But arbitrary budgets and shopping fasts haven’t worked out for me. My goal is to do the thinking before I buy something, instead of second guessing my purchase later. So I’ve created a list of rules for myself:
- No credit card use
- Save money before spending money
- Buy vintage rather than new
The list might evolve with time, but for now it’s a simple reminder to be more aware of what I do with my money.
To hold myself accountable, I’ll be posting here what I get for my wardrobe each month. In July I bought the three items above, and I’m hoping they’ll prove to be worthwhile purchases. The bag and dress are vintage, the top is new, and everything matches my colour scheme.
