Hooray! Spring is here! (well almost, we’re expecting a little snow this weekend)
When the time came to start planning my spring capsule I was so ready. I loved my winter capsule but after wearing black, maroon, and grey for nearly four months I was ready for a change.
I’ll be honest, while I was excited to plan my spring capsule and to integrate some new pieces, I have not missed shopping. I’ve realized that shopping used to be something I would pacify myself with. If I was feeling blue or bored I would pop over to TJ Maxx or Target and buy a few things. I would only spend 20 dollars or so but if you do that once a week it adds up pretty quickly!
Since “becoming” a minimalist I have gotten out of this random shopping habit. It took a little while but it feels so good. Now when I feel blue or bored? I read a book, I do some yoga, I meditate, I take Kiley for a long relaxing walk in the spring air.
We are told that more stuff will make us happy and while it might make us happy for a moment that feeling does not last long.
