Shopping Fast: August 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.

Sanuk Sandals: His and Hers

Last Saturday, the hubby and I had an impromptu road trip to Sta. Rosa City in Laguna. I had three locations in mind which we visited one after the other: Paseo de Sta. Rosa, Nuvali and Solenad (1 and 2). At Solenad 2, the hubby chanced upon a Sanuk sale which he wasn’t able to resist.

So, we now both have a pair of Sanuk footwear (first-timers here). His is a pair of Fraid Not sandals in gray (discounted at P995) while mine is a pair of Yoga Mat Wedge sandals in beige (discounted at P1,000). They were sold at 50% off and the hubby couldn’t be happier about it. I am still on shopping fast but he was generous enough to get me a pair. He said I’ll look kawawa (poor thing) if he has a pair and I don’t have my own. Awwwww, thanks again my love!

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.

Online Shopping at the New Multiply

Multiply.com has recently upgraded its online shopping system and it seems everything’s doing fine. I said so because I shopped there last week. I didn’t really intend to shop I just wanted to browse items in the “marketplace.” But before I knew it, I was already paying for three accessories via Paypal. Haha.

If there’s one thing that needs to be improved on, though, I think it has to be the shopping monitoring system. After I paid for the three accessory items I got from two different merchants, I tried checking my account if it would reflect my purchases but found none. I also wanted to monitor the movement of my items but there was no provision for that. I dunno if they just haven’t gone to that part yet or my account isn’t only updated. But still, something’s amiss here.
