Since we moved and got married I haven’t done a lot of shopping. With these life changes saving has become a top priority to both of us. And because of that my shopping has been on hold for a little while.
To fill the shopping void I have this guilty pleasure and I guess you could call it a sort of ritual that I do….
I may lose all my readers when I tell you this crazy thing, but hopefully I’m not alone. So what I do is, I go to my favorite online stores and add things I want to buy to my shopping cart (like I normally would) then I just eventually close the browser and walk away. Weird huh? This isn’t a daily thing, just every so often. It’s like pretend shopping…HA!
So while this ritual is both funny and a little sad. I have decided to find looks I like (on Pinterest) and put together a little wish list. Then monthly I will give myself a budget where I can actually BUY something and not just pretend to. And by doing this, when it comes time to shop, I can also be more intentional about my purchases.
What do you think—a little healthier approach right? Have you ever taken part in this odd, but somehow satisfying fake shopping?
My shopping list:
Long sleeve crop top
Mini cross-body purse
