My other friend has a much more realistic plan. She keeps a list of items that she wants and items must be on her list for three months before she can buy it. It keeps her from wasting on impulse purchases and since she's a lawyer she doesn't need as many casual clothes. What I like about this is that you can tell that her purchases are thoughtful and her closet is very her. I love this simple plan so I cleaned out my closet last week and started my list.
Things I got rid of: Some really old cardigans and sweaters, tops that were too big/long but not worth altering, and pants that I never wear because of the fit. Almost all of the things I got rid of were impulse purchases!
Adding to my list: (some of which have been on for awhile so I will probably be making a j.crew order soon!). Fall Shorts, distressed demin, a cute pullover, a saint James shirt, a cotton lilly dress, comfy fall pajamas.
Do you have any ways to make sure you don't impluse shop?
