I know I have thought this before, but not sure if I have spoken it out loud before…. So here goes:
“I don’t need to buy any more clothes or shoes for the rest of the year!”
Please remind me of this, if and when I have the urge to buy something new.
I was out shopping with Molly on Saturday, and I picked up three new pieces for cheap at a nice consignment shop. With the few other pieces I have added to my wardrobe over the last month, I now have enough outfits to wear to my Conference in May.
I also picked up three new shoes over the weekend at DSW, so good sales with coupons. (Note: we saw a lot of Patton-leather shoes out this year). …. BUT it’s not the money I spent, but rather the room in my closet for these.
So heads up Kelley! …. I’ve set aside four for you: brown sandals, black flat mules, black flat penny loafers (inspired by Michael Jackson), and some black boots.
Friends: Please stop me before I shop again!
On a more positive note; I will redirect my urges, thanks to my co-worker friend Lori, who did mission work in Ghana a few months ago. She has asked me to sew some simple dresses for the young girls she has met over there.
So Molly and I did go fabric shopping and started daydreaming about a simple and easy pattern to sew. I believe I will turn this project into a sewing day for the women at my church. We can get together, and have fun together while helping a good cause. More on this project as it develops. Here is some of the fabrics I bought so far (all on sale)
