I've been thinking about this more and more recnetly. I have so much stuff, so many things and I just keep buying and buying. I don't need more but I get more because of changing trends or fads or what have you. I will be the first to admit that I am pretty materialistic and I shop a lot but for 2012 I want to cut this out.
I want too apply this little mantra too all areas of my life from clothes and makeup to possessions in my home. I want less clutter and more simplicity. I'm sure my boyfriend will be thrilled to hear this as we are planning on moving in together in a few months!
I hope to get a job in January and instead of spending like mad with my additional income I want to buy a few special things that are perhaps more expensive or more meanigful and then save the rest for our house. If I haven't really considered a purchase then I will try and not make one. Nobody 'needs' the hot new thing every week and I want too try and just buy things that are going to last me a long time, that I will treasure and that are timeless.
Its not going to be easy but I'm going to try!
