So I know we Catholics are already several days into Lent, but I've decided to make a belated Lenten promise-- no shopping. Two years ago, I did it. I actually went pretty hard core, too-- I banned myself from even browsing online. No mall sauntering, no online boutiques, no NOTHING. It was insanely difficult but I did it. I think it scarred me, because I was bad last year and didn't give anything up. This year, I'm going to try it again, although I will allow myself to browse (for the sake of the blog, and my sanity). Just no buying. Gulp. This shall be interesting.
It's good for several reasons, though-- we shopping fiends always need a little "time off" to re-group our style sense and even pare down a little. It's also a nice break on the magnetic strip on Mrs. Visa. The money I don't spend can be saved up, and maybe I can reward myself with a nice purchase at the end. See? It's not all bad... I think.
Anyway, given this ban, you might be seeing more and more of my "wishlists" given many unfulfilled dreams in the next several weeks. I'll have an OOTD this evening and some fun reveals... I swear, this F21 package that should arrive on my door tonight is it. Promise. :)
