Shopping Fast: June Report

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.

Hello July! Please be kind to me like how the past months have been. Anyway, back to my shopping fast report. I think I’m getting used to this no shopping thing. For the whole month of June, I have not shopped for anything fancy or cute or beautiful. You know, the things that are included in my guidelines. I did it and I’m gonna do it until November 30th, the end of this shopping challenge.

The only thing that was added to my closet during the beautiful month of May was a pair of Sanuk sandals which my generous husband paid for. Soon, I’ll think of what to do with my excess stuff as I become more serious in living a minimalist life. For now, I will have to keep the things given to me and use them for my convenience.

Another month has passed, and I’m still shopping-free. I’m starting to be proud of myself. Haha. But seriously, it’s not easy. I still go to the mall and get to see pretty stuff, from clothing and shoes to fancy jewelry and household items. Every time, I’d just look at them with delight and warmth in my heart and that’s it. I admit sometimes I’d get this urge to buy them and give up on this self-imposed challenge. But when I’d think about what I’ve started so far, I’d get motivated enough to move forward.

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).

I think I deserve a reward because I finished February without shopping. Wohooo! It wasn’t easy, though. I had to resist all those shining, shimmering and splendid things I saw in the malls. I’m just so proud of myself. Haha.

Anyway, January passed by really fast that I didn’t have time to get tempted to shop. February, on the other hand, was a little slow. And Valentine’s Day was there to put shopping in spotlight again. Good thing we celebrated it late by having a double date with my parents in Tagaytay. It was more on eating and sight-seeing so I didn’t have to guard myself from buying anything fancy.
