In being active on Instagram, I came across a girl promoting No Shop September. I did some googling but didn’t find all that much so I gather its a relatively new idea that isn’t overly popular. But it is actually quite a brilliant idea, to challenge yourself and be satisfied with what you already have in your closet. This isn’t to say you can’t buy anything at all as that’s really hard for those of us that thrift as a form of relaxation and de-stress!
In my search for more information on this challenge I came across this blog post by Amber at Fashion, Floss and Lip Gloss. The concept fascinates me and as I prepare for a trip to Australia next month, I thought this would be an excellent time to try my luck! I like the idea of shopping in your closet. I do rotate my closet a lot, what I’m not wearing I recycle whether it be through consignment or donation. The pieces I really like I keep and wear. But I am fully capable of letting go of things I just like the idea of, but really don’t suit me.
But this idea doesn’t have to be September only, but pick a month and see how long you can go without being tempted by things you don’t need!
