Here are my reasons:
- their closets are PACKED with clothes
- It's so easy to spend money here and there on new clothes for my kids
- I want to see if I can do it
I am sharing this only to give myself a little more accountability. I think the hardest part will be not buying anything for my trip to Michigan next month. (It's hard to not get something new to wear on vacation, right?) But honestly- I can do this. And even though it's a little sad to walk by something super darling in the store, it's also the best feeling ever when I don't buy it. And it saves me time! I no longer have to walk through the kids section at Old Navy or browse the sale rack really quick while I'm at Target.
So while I don't want to BUY anything for my kiddos to wear until September, I am allowing myself to make them stuff. So if I'm feeling desperate or like they really need something, maybe I'll whip something up for them instead. And mom-- this does not apply to you. You can still feel free to buy them clothes if you want. Or any of you that feel so inclined to buy them gift... by all means, don't let my goal stand in your way ;)
