I have not spent any money since December 31st. We have bought groceries and gas for the car and that's about it. Hubby even noted yesterday that he is surprised that I am not shopping at all (it's kind of hard for me to believe too!). So since I am not buying anything (with the caveat that I can shop at the Goodwill but we just haven't got around to it yet), today I decided to clean out my closet, unpack a box of old clothes and shoes in the garage that I was going to send to the Philippines, and reinvigorate my wardrobe. I found a couple of tops I hadn't seen in ages, a pair of tennis shoes that I forgot I had, and a couple of pairs of pants. All of these will now go into my clothing rotation.
I generally go through clothes and shoes pretty fast. I wear them for a while, get bored with them, then give them away. Now that I am not shopping for a year, I decided I better make ALL of my clothes continue working for me so I don't need to buy any more!
