Goal: To spend LESS and Only Thrift Shop 2 Times a Month $ 50 budget!!!
I spent a few hours today organizing my closet to see what I don't need, and HOW MUCH ish I actually have LOL. I have been shopping like crazy the past few months, both thrifting and regular retail shopping. I'm single, no children (well two pet children) and recently lost a source of attitional financial support when my mother moved to her own place this past weekend.
So I decided that I have MORE than enough new, used and rarily worn items that I have yet to wear and I need to really take action and curb my shopping/spending on clothing and shoes.
So in order to do this getting my closet together was a must!! I am a very visually organized person. I need to see things in order to be able to have a clear perspective. After removing items that I plan to send to goodwill, items to sell to Plato's Closet or Crossroads Trading I discoverd a closet still FULL of items that I almost had forgetten I had, which is really just terrible and borderline "needing some serious HELP" LBVS!!
If you also have a goal of "Saving Money by Shopping Your Closet" please speak out and lets support one another :)
This is what my ORGANIZED Shoe Room and Closet now look like :)
