I am a failure. I had been on a self-inflicted two month spending ban since January 12, but I ended it prematurely last night. I thought I would challenge myself to not buy anything except food and transportation. I was doing extremely well and lasted for around a month and a half. I was supposed to be free on March 12, but I couldn’t take it anymore. I like to shop, but I don’t have a serious spending problem. I’m guessing you guys know that denying yourself something just makes you want it more.
A part of me does feel silly for not lasting as long as I promised myself I would, as I usually pride myself on my willpower. There is just nothing else going on for me right now. Just school work and no sun. So there is my justification. Judge me if you must. I bought lots of things (*gulp*) - some with leftover Christmas money (see?! I can budget!), and the rest with my own funds. Today, I’m going to share the Zara boots I bought. I have been longing for them ever since I saw them, but they were too expensive. To my surprise, they were marked down to 50% off – and they had them in my size! They are also really comfortable.
Now, I can’t say I regret this purchase.
