Moratorium and DIY


I told myself I could upgrade my I-phone if I didn't buy any clothes for the month of July.




So part of the deal with myself was to re-purpose some of my old clothes--I have a HUGE re-purpose, mend, cut up and use for napkins pile--and if I was a good girl.....and made this tee shirt.....

Do you often make deals with yourself?  If I do this, than I can do that?
And now you ask, how am I doing?

  1. Dress $29.00 sale at Marshall's 
  2. 2 Lace tops $15.99 each ( bought to re-purpose other clothes, so they don't count)
  3. 2 bras (they don't count either, lol)
I'll keep you posted on my moratorium~

  4. My deals usually only last about 15 minutes. I have a short attention span. :-p Love the tee; my DIY's usually look like one of my dogs tried to make them...

  5. You did a great job on the tie-dye! I haven't had very good luck with some of my DIYs, but I intend to keep trying.

    I never make deals with myself or New Year's resolutions, because it just makes me feel contrary and I'm bound to fail! My shopping moratorium is pure laziness.
