Shopping without spending!

Most of you know...I'm almost done with my month free of shopping!! (Feb 12th). But I still cant keep myself off the forever 21 website...and putting things in my cart that I "want" but cant buy! ha ha. Does anyone else do this, or is it just me?? Its like shopping..with out the actual spending! ha ha. These are a few things that are sitting there...haunting me...and TEMPTING me.
As far as not shopping... here is a little update. As you all know...it's difficult! It's weird not being able to just purchase something you want...or should I say purchasing 6 things you want. You all know I have bought a few things here and there..that I NEEDED (I really did.) But its actually nice buying something that you need and being like "wow,I don't feel guilty at all buying this because I actually need it"...and I haven't gone out and purchased 16 other things similar that I just kind of want! Its also nice being able to really decide if I REALLY want something that I wont be able to find just anywhere. Rather than things that I think are cute...that I just kinda want...just to buy something. its really refreshing...and I'm loving it! I think as soon as Feb 12th comes around...I'm not going to go on a full out shopping binge.. but I might purchase a few things. As for saving, it does feel good. and buying things I not only want.. but I NEED feels so much less heavy on my shoulders.

Thanks for reading! xoxoxoxoxo


  1. I totally know how you feel! And that whole "putting things in my cart without actually buying?" TOTALLY NORMAL, lol. I do it a lot!

  2. i know how you feel i do the same ill sit there and put things in my "bag" on forever 21 .com and it actually makes you get rid of the urge to shop plus when you look back at what you "purchased" you can really see if its something you want or just a random buy. great post :)

  3. I always put stuff in my cart and then click off the website. Always! Online shopping without losing any money, haha :)

  4. I know what you mean, I do that too! Usually. But I totally failed today because of the Vday sale! I caved bad. And still started another cart! Eek! I know this comment is way later than the post, but I just came across your yt channel and had to check out your blog. Love your style!

  5. I do the same thing girl... I hate it when I put somthing in my cart then the next day or week it's gone =(
