One thing about my new found frugality (or, at least, efforts to be frugal) is that it's a lot easier than I thought it would be. Especially when it came to shopping.
I have been making a conscious effort to only buy things that I absolutely adore and am 100% positive I will wear regularly. I've also started taking a lot more time to make the decision to buy something - I used to be a ridiculous impulse buyer! (And really, it still gets the best of me sometimes.)
However, I've started noticing recently that I now have to actually talk myself into buying things. On a recent shopping trip south of the border I only bought two things! Shoes that I really did need and a skirt that I absolutely adore. Well, and I split on a bag of chocolate covered potato chips, but I mean...come on. Of course I did.
And then an item will come along that I don't need to think about for even a second to know that it is something that is meant for me to buy.
Like, for instance, this stunning silk scarf from Fieldguided.
There is a summer sale happening in their shop right now - all Light as a feather scarves are 25% off!
Go buy one for yourself, and then maybe that meteorite one for me as a thank you for turning you on to the sale ;)
