No Buy Month
I’m fresh off of reading Frugalista’s post [via Afrobella] about February being a no buy month. I figured I’d jump on the bandwagon seeing as how I am…extremely…impulsive when it comes to throwing down my cash. This month, it’s gas, groceries, and nothing else (save a pre-scheduled dinner with the besties on the 12th).
I’m sure I can conquer anything if I just have the will…I just don’t know how willing I am. LOL. It’s more than possible that I can get by with what’s in my closet and in my refrigerator for the next 25 days, so we’ll see how it goes. Chauss says that the best shopping is done in your own closet, anyway.
SIDE NOTE: I got an email from Melissa of Penny Rae Vintage a couple of days ago; she’s in a competition called Project Design, y’all. Apparently, the top 6 designers in this competition get to show their lines during St. Louis Fashion Week(!). Since she’s the only designer there using vintage clothing (her main gig is reconstructing pieces), I thought I’d give her a shout out on the ol’ blog here. Here’s a link to the page where you can vote for her.
Good luck, girlie!!
My blog’s new home is up; you should go there.
