In an attempt to curb spending (although I don't think I'm going to have much time to shop in the next few months), like last year in the first quarter (January-March), I'm going to once again take on the Five-Item Challenge. I am going to keep the rules the same:
I am allowed to buy only 5 items for the next three months including accessories, but not including necessities like underwear and socks or items purchased with gift cards. There is no price limit, but I obviously want to do the best I can in the savings department. This will hopefully cut down on my spending for the months of January, February, and March while putting a lot of thought into my purchases focusing on needs vs. wants and paying close attention to the quality of items.BUT, I will add a small allowance of accessories of $20 per month. Any accessory purchased over the $20 allowance will count as one item. Last year I was successful, so I am hoping for a repeat. Anyone else with me this year? ;)
I should also mention that I am now also on Instagram. You probably won't believe this, but up until a few weeks ago, I did not own a smartphone! I have now joined the 21st century. LOL. So if you are interested in a small peek into my personal life and a few outfits (even though I have yet to get into the habit of snapping them) you can follow me here!
