Note: I started my self-imposed shopping ban on January 1, 2014. I made it official online through this post, and called it a “shopping fast.” I also shared there the reasons why I took the challenge and laid down some rules to guide me while on it.
March has arrived and left swiftly. I’m giddy to tell you that I succeeded in making the whole month shopping-free. I think I deserve a pat on the back. Haha.
But just like in February, I did receive some new stuff. Only two items, though. One is a clutch (given to me as pasalubong by my boss when she travelled to Hong Kong) and the other is a skirt (given to me by my very generous and thoughtful MIL).
Both items are lovely and I welcomed them with open arms when I received them. They were “gifts,” after all. And I’m truly grateful to the people who continue to think of me when they’re out shopping. I guess I’ll just worry about the accumulation of these gifted items after this shopping fast is over and done with. I want to be a minimalist, remember?
Oh, and hello April! I hope you’ll be as good to me as March has been. 🙂
