Today is my birthday. And I’m going to do something big.
Inspired by the recent story of a friend who refrained from purchasing new clothes and accessories for an entire year, challenged to truly use the abundance of her closet, I begin my own year of “consumer abstinence”.
Easier said than done, I plan to stop purchasing all home decor, clothing, shoes, jewelry and accessories for the next year (with the exception of allowing myself 4 new items during a previously booked shopping trip with my bestie this fall). I will be using this space to document my journey and to offer tips I learn along the way. But why am I doing this?
Fashion and interior decor are my creative outlet, my passion— but they are also my addiction. Over the next three hundred and sixty five days, I hope to purge myself of the unquenchable desire to have new and have more. My goal is to find peace, and deeper ways to express my creativity.
Feeling the truth behind the quote “every possession is an anchor”, I cannot wait to become unbound!
Unbuyer’s Tip #1: Be honest with yourself.
