Almost two weeks down of no clothing or shoes shopping! It is crazy how many temptations I have on the daily to buy or look at things. Whether its getting an email or seeing an ad on my Facebook, I have stopped myself so many times from going to a website to online shop.
Last Saturday, I worked a few hours and also saw several cute things that I just knew I NEEDED (haha), but I did not cave. I left the store with no purchases.
Even though working in retail can be tough, I think the biggest thing to help with buying temptations this week was unsubscribing from a lot of marketing emails from companies. Once I stopped seeing 5 emails a day about the “biggest sale of the year,” I was able to get some of my shopping temptations to lessen.
I bet if you took inventory of your emails, you would find a few stores to unsubscribe to as well to reduce your inclination to shop!
I also used this week to wear a couple new items that still had tags on them. I felt like I just went shopping!
After a successful two weeks, I think I can continue throughout the rest of May without making any unnecessary purchases. Are any of you making a change in your shopping habits?! Let me know!
