After doing the 30 Day Savings Challenge on Facebook a few weeks ago, I think I got a glimpse of where some of my not so cute spending habits lie. I noticed that my biggest spending habit was on going out to eat and of course, shopping. Now even though I'm still working on the eating out, I really learned a lot about myself in terms of shopping. I have always tried to be a "thrifty shopper," but I have never taken time to ask myself this question while shopping... "Do I really need this?"
I learned surprisingly that nine times out of 10, I do not need the items I pick up. I decided to clean out my closet and really take an inventory of what I needed. The top priority on my list of actual clothing needs were work attire.
|Coat: Rue 21 | Skirt: Belk | Tights: Belk | Heels: ShoeDazzle (ON SALE)|
So, I decided to step up my game and through thrifting and clearance racks, I'm going to build a better work wardrobe. In fact, the clearance rack at Belk is where I purchased this leopard print skirt. I'm proud of this under $10 purchase because it was originally marked at $68. Boom!
Do you ever stop to think if you really need an item?
P.S. Did you notice I changed my hair? Read the details here.
God bless & stay fabellis,
