I have nothing to wear!
How many times have you said this while standing in front of your closet? Is this really so? You have a plethora of outfit combinations staring you in the face and you have nothing to wear? Well, I must say that I go through this almost on a nightly basis and then I feel the urge to go online to order that cute top that I saw earlier or that cute skirt, or that really cool necklace that I may wear only once, etc etc. So how do I remedy this?
Well, I’ve come up with this challenge. Dun dun dun…
I challenge myself to not purchase any clothing or accessories for 3 months beginning August 1st and will wear only the clothes that are currently in my possession. I will take a photo of the outfits that I wear each day and will post an update on day 15 and day 30 each month regarding my progress.
What I hope to gain from this challenge?
1) A different perspective on my wants versus my needs.
2) Since I can easily spend up to $1,000/month on clothing or unnecessary stuff, I expect to see some extra pocket change at the end of the 3 months.
3) This is my very first challenge and it will be a tough one so by the end of this, I will come out a little stronger and with the confidence that I can actually challenge myself to be better.
So, there it is!
Are there any brave souls who are willing to join me in this challenge? If so, let me know your thoughts. If not, I will gladly do it on my own and report back to you. Wish me luck!
