Made it a month with no shopping

With only one more day of the month of July to go, it's safe to say that I made it the whole month with no clothing shopping! It may not seem like a big deal to some, but I found that my little impulse shopping excursions were adding up. The 'no shopping' was one of the six summer goals that I outlined earlier this month . I plan to do this exercise again in September (and perhaps extend it to October) after buying a few fall transition items and a black shoulder bag since my favorite one is showing its age. If I'm ever going to meet my financial goals, I'll have to pay attention closer attention to how I spend my money and really differentiate between needs and wants. How much stuff does one girl really need anyway?

Congrats! I had a no clothes spend June and it was hard! July was about $95 and I hope I can spend little to none in August. Clothes are the enemy of savings for me!

Wow I applaud your efforts! I don't think I could ever quit cold turkey. I'm budgeting $100 per month on clothing and I think that's the best I can do! Haha
