Fast fashion is dictating us to be obsessed with shopping and buying the latest trends. Constant sales drive us crazy when we see how cheap a pair of must-have shoes can get. Well, after observing and understanding that I need to stop buying things that I don't need and not going to wear, I decided to do this small experiment. And you know what? I survived! My blog is still running and I still have material to shoot for my Instagram. I might not share all the newbies that I usually buy, but you know - no one even notices. Instead, I can recycle all the clothes that I have and show how you can look fabulous without all the new pieces.
In the beginning, it was hard when I kept getting emails about the last days of sales, or a new season collection was out. Of course, I would spend hours and hours searching and looking at what I could've bought. But I reminded myself about my experiment. After some time, I finally felt relief that I didn't really care about these new things. Here are a few secrets that helped me survive so long:
- delete all your shopping apps from your phone;
- unsubscribe from all online stores;
- stop checking bloggers who promote a lot of shopping hauls;
- avoid big malls;
- spend less time on Instagram;
- if nothing helps, destroy your credit card!
I hope that this post will help you out to stop wasting your money on things you are not going to wear and
