Do you get the “itch” to refresh your summer wardrobe? Inevitably, I get the shopping bug every summer.
As much as I try to limit my shopping now, I know I’m never going to be one that’s able to successfully complete year-long (or longer) shopping bans. These types of all-or-nothing situations are not good for me. Whenever I try to deny myself of something completely, I end up in a binge and then I’m right back where I started again.
This has been proven by my two attempts at shopping bans, and whenever I try to cut out certain foods in my diet. I’m just not an all-or-nothing person.
Instead, I’ve found that with shopping and with food, it’s best if I allow myself to have the “bad” things in moderation.
That said, I’ve been having intense shopping “cravings” lately and I know it’s because I’ve been pretty darn good about not doing much shopping this year. I have gotten a few things, like some jeans that fit and a couple of shirts for my work from home wardrobe, but I’ve limited my shopping.
When I decided to spruce up my summer wardrobe with a few new pieces of clothing this year, I knew I needed to be careful about how much I spent and how many items I bought.
