I spent too much; but I don't feel bad

Sunday, January 12, 2020

I've recently been working on a few different projects in my home to help prevent cabin fever / stir crazy / SAD and what not... so one of the things I did was took out all of the laundry hanging in my closet and went through piece by piece.

Let me tell ya, I was finding items I had worn in highscool tucked away in that evidently magical portal-of-a-closet. After all was said and done, I had a huge stack of empty hangers and a few more pieces of clothing in a "maybe, maybe not" pile.

Then.... my friend reminded me they had a free month of Amazon Prime for a few days more. I soon found that, unlike a physical cart in a store, there is no limit to how much you can smash into a cart made of currents of electrons.

Do I feel guilty though? Nah. I can reason this, rational it. I never, and I mean NEVER shop for clothes or really shop for myself aside from the "dont die" stuff like food, electricity, rent. I don't think I've bought new things in at least half a decade - the couple of shirts I have gotten over the years have all been exciting finds at Goodwill.

In addition to that, almost everything I bought was purchased with the direct intention of being worn to work, or something that was both nice enough to wear to work but also casual enough that I could pair it with jeans ----- basically, I'm hoping a new wardrobe will help perk the day up - I always felt a bit like that one kid in school who just wears the same 4 super faded shirts over and over which doesn't help with the confidence/ego when dealing in a very social setting.

So a lot of the stuff has already come. I am in LOOOOOOVE with some of the articles I purchased. I find it very difficult finding clothes that fit me the way I like - but I found a company that makes little south korean dudes clothes and I couldn't be happier about it! I've also tossed out the things in the "maybe, maybe not" pile as they were old favorites that I found almost Identical, bright, new replacements for. Cheers!

    Great finding clothes that fit you well. My grandma told me to buy quality vs quantity in clothes. After I retired I donated all but 1 suit to a women's shelter, (50). Since losing weight thrift stores are great. Someone needs your maybe pile.
