Today marks Day 30 of the #30DaysNoShopping Challenge.
And if you follow me on Instagram, you know I failed.
I was going strong until my friend Kenzie invited me to the mall on Day 20.
I had to get an outfit for my work Christmas party, which is on December 6. Normally I would have been able to wait, but the two stores we stopped at (H&M and Forever 21) have such quick turn-around with their selections that I didn’t want to risk it.
At least that’s what I’m telling myself.
However, I’ve already worn a few of the pieces quite a bit in just a week, which tells me they were worthwhile.
So, what did I buy?
I don’t want to post pictures because some of the pieces will be for the Christmas party, but here’s a wrap-up:
Two dresses from H&M: $34.83
Shirt and shawl from Forever 21: $37.74
Sweater and purse from H&M: $38.05
Grand Total: $110.62
This reminds me of a saying I’ve heard a few times: We go bankrupt one $30 purchase at a time.
So I failed this #30DaysNoShopping Challenge, but I’ll be starting it again in January. Hopefully it will go much more smoothly the second time around.
