I still forget on occasion, after all I am only human (honest) forget to stop and weigh up my wants versus needs. I am better at it ... so much better ... these days though compared to the old, old me back in the town.
I can browse my way around a shop admiring and pointing things out to whoever I am with and not want to buy them at all. The few things I have bought, usually when Lovely Hubby says 'go on treat yourself' I sometimes regret when I get home.
How much nicer it is to get home with nothing but my handbag to hang back in the cupboard, nothing to put away or to find a home for. It's liberating.
And it's with this in mind that I am going to have a last sort out of my clothes, hoping to get one more car boot sale done in the next couple of weeks. It's almost time to do the Autumn round of Project 333, it starts on 1st October, the Summer round went out of the window for me, with all my t shirts being in the drawer and accessible, and no I didn't find it easier having them all there, I found it a bit stressful and A LOT annoying.
I don't need lots of clothes and I don't want lots of clothes and over the last few years I have whittled them down nicely, this year of living without any new clothes has brought this home to us both. Yes, there are things we know we will have to purchase as soon as the year is over, but actually not that many. It's been good to put a brake on the spending in this way.
