I made an interesting observation last week. While perusing Shop Bop during their Friends and Family event, I couldn’t find one thing that I wanted to buy. Not. One. Thing. (Don’t you love how writing one word with a period is a thing now?) The sales are compelling but I can’t seem to justify the spend. Thoughts like “I already own a black jersey dress” or “I have red pumps, do I really need a second pair?” kept popping into my head. Then I made another realization, I hadn’t bought any new clothes for myself in over a month. Could I have possibly already owned “everything”? I was a little sad since I consider online shopping a sport. However, other than saving money, there are major benefits to a bout of Shopper’s Block. Here’s five of them. 1. Rediscovering oldies but goodies from your closet is just as exciting 2. You spend less time on the Internet and more quality time with loved ones 3. You have more funds for self-pampering manis, pedis, and massages 4. You have more funds to try out the latest and greatest restaurants 5. You can finally try out the minimalist lifestyle
What other advantages can come from a shopping hiatus?
