#noshop19 Month 2 Update

I have officially made it two full months without shopping for myself. 

Hard to believe, ain't it?! Ha ha. 

In all seriousness, I feel a sense of relief. I never realized just HOW MUCH TIME I spent browsing online. Whether it be via Instagram influencers, bloggers I follow, Facebook ads, email marketing, or just random searches because I liked what someone was wearing. 

Now, when or if I see a cute outfit, the first place I go is in my own closet. Shocking, right?! Why would I do that when the thrill of buying new is available?! Well, I am determined to rework my brain into thinking in a new capacity. 

I have rediscovered things in my closet I forgot about. I have also continued to part with items as one of my resolutions is to remove 52 bags of stuff from my home over the 52 weeks of the year. I think I'm over 10 bags out of my house as of now, maybe 11 or 12. Is it bad that I already lost count?! I should probably keep better track.

This month, I added two new items into my wardrobe. 

1. A new pair of Rothys. HOWEVER, I had referral credits available to use so they were free. And they're super fun and cute! 

2. A new kitchen apron for myself and a matching one for Ness. This has been something I've been searching for for quite some time. I actually started looking last summer. I used Poshmark credit and got it there, so is it really shopping since I didn't spend "real money"?! And while they are 'girly' my toddler doesn't care and just REALLY likes to "match mommy" 

How do you think I'm doing? Do you think I'll last the whole year?! 

And for those wondering how my saving is going for my big reward, I'm doing great!
