I don't know about ya'll, but after the holidays my bank account is usually pretty strained. After all the parties, presents, and after Christmas sales the poor thing definitely needs a break. I was thinking about this the other day and came up with and idea: No Spend Till Spring.
That's about 2 months of not buying clothes, shoes, jewelry, or makeup! Yikes! I don't think I've ever gone that long without doing that so it will definitely be a challenge. I know there is "No Spend September," but I don't think I could ever do that. That's when I NEED to shop due to the major season change, new fall/winter clothes, and usually the start of school. Doing it this time of year, I thought, that because it's right after I got Christmas and birthday presents and all the spring collections are starting to come out and the winter ones are being phased out, that it would be a great time to try an not spend money on things I don't need. After all, those riding boots will only get worn another 2 months anyways (well here in the south) and after that they'll end up sitting in the top of my closet until October.
So instead of spending money on last seasons winter clothes that will only be worn for 2 more months anyways, why not try an beef up my savings over the next two months, then when spring comes I can pick up a few new items for my closet without feeling guilty about spending too much money...
Hashtag #nospendtillspring on Twitter if you want to do it too! Trust me, if I'm not shopping for the next two months, I'm going to need as much support as I can get!
What do you think of the idea? Want to try it with me? I'd love to hear your opinion! :)
