No Shopping October & A Giveaway!!
Guess what I am going to do in October? Abstain from shopping! I got the idea from Bekah at Matters of Merrymaking. It will be hard but I think it is necessary. I have plenty of clothes and shoes and jewelry and I have been buying too much. I've been buying individual items I like without any regard to how well it fits into my wardrobe. Plus, I need to be a better saver and I'd like to start paying toward school loans while I am still in school. So these are my rules:
No clothes, shoes, or accessories (except I will be buying a Mates of State shirt at their show)
No groupons or living social deals
No purchases from fab.com even on non-clothing items
I can however use gift cards or credits I already have outstanding.
dress: Loft; cardigan: Gap; shoes: Bandolino; necklace: New York & Co; earrings: Silver Mine Jewelry; bracelet: gift
Speaking of Groupon, I accidentally purchased two for Threadless during the month of August. I've already used one and have decided I'm going to give the other one away to one of you!
Threadless offers cute graphic tees for men, women, and kids. I purchased this Abe tee for myself. The Groupon is for $30 to use at threadless.com The Groupon expires in the middle of November so please be sure that if you enter the giveaway you will actually use it.
To enter all you need to do is leave a comment below telling me if you have ever placed a self-imposed shopping ban on yourself. For a bonus entry follow me on twitter.
Be sure to leave separate comments for both and make sure I have a way to contact you if you win.
I will accept entries until next Saturday October 8th Noon EST
