Since No Buy July seemed to be a hit for me – financially anyways – I’m going to do something new – SAVE IT SEPTEMBER! 🙂 Since my no buy I have felt liberated from my shopping tendencies…and I could be borderline shopaholic?! In August when I used birthday money to buy a few things – I felt awful, and had my mom’s voice echoing in my head. “Do you really need that?!” -or- “Are you sure that’s what you want to spend your money on?!”
Point taken Mom! (It only took me 30 years to catch on!) – I realized I have a ton of stuff already. Its my goal to keep working through products I have and find ways to revitalize my wardrobe without buying. (I’m going to try anyways!) Fall ushers in cooler weather and I have a stock pile of sweaters that are itching to come out of summer hiding, and a ton of accessories. I’m going back to buying only necessities like groceries, household supplies, and gas.
*First Confession…I did splurge and spent $13.00 on a bottle of Apple Wine but that was on August 31, 2013…and then I was thinking after – do I really want it?! I was at a winery, enjoying a sampling, and felt compelled to purchase since they offered samples. BTW…a wine weekends post is coming this week! I visited 2 wineries in 2 weekends – stay tuned for my reviews of a few new wines.
Join me on the Save It September journey – I’m going to be sharing some new ideas with you and see if I can discover ways to shop what I already have and still come out on top!
Thanks for stopping by Gracious Luck today – are there any posts you’d like to see? Do you ever get buyers remorse? Even if its only for a $13 bottle of wine?!
