To keep my shopping habit in check...

Saturday, June 11, 2011


To stick to a monthly clothes budget of £60.00
(until further notice)

To only purchase an item if at least three different outfits can be created
(to limit further purchases)

To wait 24hrs before clicking 'add to bag'
(to stop online impulse buys)


Do you have any 'rules'? I'd love to know what they are and do they work for you?

Wish me luck.

  1. despite my ever increasing wardrobe, I'm actually pretty good with money, so I don't worry too much...it's more because for a while I didn't spend anything though due to ocd issues...so ya know...lost time and all! I really ought to work out a proper budget!

  2. I would never survive.
    I might actually take these "rules" into consideration, though. They are brilliant.
    We'll see how that goes for me, though ...
    Good luck!!!

  5. Good luck. I'm definitely using these rules. I have a 'List'. I won't buy anything when I'm out and about if it's not on the list.

  6. I've started to look at charity shops for a retail fix, I sometimes can't believe what people throw away. Anyway one rule I try to stick to is - will the item go with 9 things in your wardrobe. At least then, you're not buying something that requires you to buy other itmes to go with it. xx

  7. For me at the moment it is quite simply, don't go shopping! I was doing ok till yesterday when I succumbed to temptation in the vintage shops in Manchester. Luckily I'm not too bad with online shopping.
