I just couldn’t do it. I couldn’t resist the amazing post-holiday sales. I have to confess…I shopped. And that’s not really the bad part because I think you should always have an eye open for deals on items you are needing to replace, upgrade, or for a future capsule. So, for me, the shopping part isn’t so bad..that’s just being a smart consumer. I am more focusing on getting away from shopping just to shop and buying just because it’s a great deal. So, as long as I’m buying things after carefully considering if it’s a necessity and not getting sucked into the “but it’s only $9” or “it looked so cute on so-and-so” mindset I think I’m sticking to my capsule goals.
I did buy two items over break (one shown here) for my spring capsule, but the confession is that I also shopped for items to add into my capsule now. The typical rule of the capsule is that you choose your items and you wear only those items for the season. I thought I would try something a little different and do a quick video post showing what I bought and why.
Given the huge commercialism of the holidays and post-holiday sales I am honestly very proud of myself that I didn’t give in to anything more than is shown here. My inbox, my instagram feed, and my computer and TV screens were filled with sale ads and I saw tons of cute stuff, but I resisted adding anything I didn’t feel I needed. I survived my first major sale season of no-shopping with these few little dings.
I will also add that I have worn the black jogger pants 3 times already since receiving them 5 days ago! Now, that’s what a capsule is all about 🙂
