Preparation Time

Tomorrow is the beginning of my experiment, so I took some time tonight to do some preparation for the upcoming month.  This included removing my email from all shopping and sample sale related mailing lists and doing some final edits to my blog.

The first shopping temptation that I am going to face is on Saturday when I am going to Buffalo shopping for the day!, you say?  Well yes and no.  I planned the trip a while ago with a good friend, before I realized that it would be during my no shopping month.  So, yes I will be going shopping with her, but no, I won't be doing any of the purchasing.  Honestly, this sounds totally crazy, even as I write this, because usually a shopping trip to the States is my favourite place to find unique pieces and crazy deals, but it will be a good test of my resolve.  And, I am confident that I will return empty handed.

I'll let you know how it goes!



  1. Jenny! That's really admirable of u! I wish you all the best on your non-shopping expedition! Can't wait to hear how it goes!

  2. Hey Jen! What a great idea! I will be following to see all your unique combinations of outfits. I did something similar only a year of no shopping last year, and although it was challenging it was a rewarding experience .... you'll be a different person when it's all over! Have fun!
