The year is almost over and about 4 months ago I decided not to purchase any new clothes for myself for the rest of 2016.
I am proud to say I have made it!
There were plenty of times where I was tempted to purchase things, but my view on consumerism has really changed. Do I need something or do I just want it? I completely opted out of The King of Consumerism that is Black Friday and actively avoided browsing online.
When I did need to get a pair of jeans for work, I bought them from Goodwill.
Unfortunately, I did end up buying one piece of clothing, a pair of fleece leggings. If you live in Chicago (which has been colder than Mars the past couple days), you would understand this purchase.
2017 might be the year I don’t buy any new clothes. Stay tuned!
