How excited am I to share that I did very well at sticking to my Shopping Moratorium this month? Very. I was telling my father about my Shopping Moratorium and he audibly laughed when I started, “I am not a compulsive shopper, but I do love shopping…”
While I did make some purchases, they were smart and minimal:
- I had $45 in Banana Republic Rewards and I did not want them to go to waste. Last weekend, full price items were 40% off. I bought this candle and this one-shoulder shirt. After the 40% off promotion, my $45 rewards, BRCARD 10% off, and LUXE free three-to-five day shipping, the purchase totaled to twelve dollars and change.
- I had a 30% off coupon for CVS. I was nearly out of shampoo and conditioner and after confirming that I did not have any bottles of either stowed away, bought one of each.
I cannot tell you the last time that I felt so in control of my spending.
