I went shopping 2 weeks ago and I did go to Express and buy jeans. It's like I opened up the floodgates and I want to go again. I have the day off and I'm going into (a bigger) town with Lil' Punk to get paid on my side gig, have lunch, visit my chiropractor and I want to go shopping for clothes.
I think that a large part of me wanting to go shopping now is that I feel good about myself. Another part is that the dress code at my new job is much more casual than my previous job. We can wear jeans on Friday if we pay $1 to United Way. The men wear ties on occasion but the women aren't expected to wear suits everyday. As long as we don't wear jeans or hoodies the other days, we can wear whatever. It opens up so many possibilities for my wardrobe. I just want to shop and shop to get it updated.
Maybe I should set a limit of $50 per month from now until the end of the year to go shopping with for myself. That way I know that it is in the budget so I won't go crazy and spend $300 at one time.
How do you regulate your clothes shopping?
