This isn’t necessarily for you. It’s more for me. But if it helps you, you’re welcome.
I don’t intend to share anything super personal on here, I’d rather people now know who I am for now. All that’s necessary is the following.
I spend too much. I rely too much on material things to make me happy. Don’t get me wrong, I am not an obsessive shopper, I am not in debt due to shopping. In our time though we have come to rely too much on things to make us happy. I don’t want to be that person anymore.
Starting today, May 16, 2017, I will not be spending for an entire year on extra material things. I only intend to spend on things that I currently use daily and run out of, for example, I don’t cheap out on conditioner, I have thick, curly hair and that would only do me a disservice.
I am a bit of a makeup junkie and I frequent http://www.reddit.com/r/makeuprehab, I have too many things I do not use and about 12 foundations that I do use. I will be using up all of those and only re-purchasing my favorite which is a Clinique (the name escapes me right now).
My closet is currently pretty monotone, I wear a lot of jeans and a lot of black tops, it works for me and it’s easy but I find myself buying every black top I can find when I’m pretty well stocked.
By posting here (I haven’t decided how often yet) I will track my failures and successes in not buying things like clothes, shoes, bags, and extra makeup. Things I use to fill some hole that can’t be filled by material things.
I am hoping to be able to find more passion. I used to read constantly and have gotten away from that. I find that I ignore my husband sometimes because I’m busy looking online for the perfect bag that doesn’t actually exist. I want to bake more, another hobby I got away from. (That’s as much as you’ll get right now, I am married and we have two cats).
Please excuse if this sounds disorganized, this is my first post and I will be working on finding my style and my voice.
