A no-shopping- resolution

… and its drawbacks and hardships. 😉

A friend and colleague of mine told me her resolution in the summer break: she’d only buy something she does not have, or something she needs to replace, until next year.
Ok, I am in, I said. (we talked about clothes and shoes) I have so many clothes, and shoes, and bags, scarves and jackets, sports clothes, dresses, blouses, cardigans… everything. It will do me good.

That was Tuesday September 6.

Two days later I met a friend for a chat, and afterwards I browsed the shops with my husband – 0 purchases on my side, many on his. That was easy.

Three days later I brought earrings to be repaired in town and browsed a bit for a large backpack I had yearned for for some time, by Kapton & Son.
Since this school year I’ll be travelling by train to and from school, I need a backpack large enough for all my books and notes, pencil case and lunch box and water bottle. (feeling like a student)
While browsing, I remembered a backpack at home my dad had once given me – actually, a laptop backpack, but quite large. Shoot, I thought.
Plans to buy a backpack: abandoned.

At least until I have tried the one I already have for several days to see if it suits my needs. Or until the one I have needs to be replaced after having been destroyed beyond repair (no scenario comes to mind, duh…).

The project seems to be harder than I thought. Shall check how my friend is doing. 🙂
