December Shopping [and gift!] Summary

Believe it or not, this is all that I added to my closet this month. And all of them were Christmas gifts!

One of my 2016 goals is to try and pay off my credit cards and, to do that, I need to stop buying things. Well, at least I need to stop buying clothes. I have credit at Shopbop and at Le Tote if I really want something.

Side note: Le Tote is raising their prices after the first of the year so this is your last chance to lock-in the under $50 per month pricing! Use code ERIN25 to get your first month for 50% off.

Anyway, to be honest, I don’t really need anything right now. In fact, I should probably be purging my closet and whittling it down to the items I really wear and not just hang onto things on the off-chance I might be able to create an outfit with them some day.

I have a lot of outfits saved on my Pinterest boards but lately I’ve been gravitating toward neutrals and simple outfits. I just have this weird fear that if I get rid of something then I’ll have a desire to wear it and it will be gone. Am I alone in this?

Regardless, there’s still no need for much shopping right now. I’ve got what I need. And the credit card balance to show for it. Time to get to work on that! So, uh, if you could click on my little affiliate links and help me out that would be nice, too 🙂 Yes, I just said that. Only kind of shamelessly.

    Well done lady- excellent self restraint…it’s tough. Me? I wasn’t as good as you HA! Do you have any budget goals for 2016? I am trying to nail mine down and am thinking I give myself a flat dollar amount to use for the whole year instead of a monthly allowance.

    LeTote is increasing their membership fee??? I didn’t hear that until now and that is a bummer!

    Great job on holding back from all the holiday sales! Sadly, I can’t quite say the same for myself…

    I love that black and gold watch. Very classic and elegant.

      Yeah, they are, but I don’t know what to, exactly. I believe we’re grandfathered in at the $49 per month price, though!

      I think it helped that I didn’t go t the mall and I tried to delete most of the sales emails I got 🙂
