I added three items this month and have reached my goal of 36 items for the year. I've been really happy with this challenge because I think spreading the shopping through all of the months of the year has reigned in my tendency to shop emotionally. Limiting my purchases to three per month has make me more thoughtful. Because I went over several times, I am now through for the year and I'm OK with that. Last year I made some bad choices during the Holiday sales.

I found my wide leg blue jeans this month (three were sent back), the perfect for me red puffer I've been looking for (saw it on a Suz post), and the elusive perfect shoe for my new skirt (flats did not work for my feet).

This is the first year that I finished all of my wardrobe and holiday shopping for the family before Thanksgiving. It feels great! How are you doing?
