The impending cross country move has been motivation enough not to go shopping, be it online or brick-and-mortar. There has been no shopping for me for the past two weeks, thank you very much!
Also, I closed my J.Crew, Banana Republic, and Victoria’s Secret store credit cards. While I was able to score clothing for pennies or dollars due to credit card rewards, I will no longer be tempted by that siren song.
As a control freak, being able to exercise discipline and restraint when it comes to resisting shopping has been the most fantastic feeling.
