Another month, another mere trickle of shopping. The only item I bought this month was a t-shirt for my theme park capsule and, really, my husband bought it to cheer me up when I was having a bad day. I don't usually purchase "seasonal" items like this tee, but I've already worn it several times, and am making a point to wear it as often as possible while it's still in-season.
I also already ordered a new blouse for fall, but it hasn't yet arrived, so it will count towards October if I decide to keep it. I have quite a few things on my "to buy for winter" list, so next month might be bigger than the past few.
Here's the boilerplate:
In our yearlong shopping challenge, I committed to buying 31 or fewer items (not counting undergarments).
January - 0 items
February - 5 items
March - 2 items
April - 2 items
May - 4 items
June - 1 item
July - 2 items
August - 0 items
September - 1 item
This brings my total purchases for the year to 17 purchases, still plenty of room to to an end-of-year refresh! You can see all my 2019 purchases together in this collection, and I'll put them in the next post as well. I've retired 24 items this year, so my wardrobe is shrinking. All in all, I have 112 items total in my closet, if I count all categories except jewelry, underwear and sleepwear (though I am counting sleep/lounge in my 31 purchases and my retirements.)
