Emerson Made & the Shopping Diet

I've been salivating over the Spring releases from Emerson Made and if I wasn't going on a darn shopping diet (more on this below) I'd be tempted to scoop a couple items asap.

Some of my favs:

Sigh.  Lust.

Anyhoo, on this self imposed shopping diet (mentioned above, a light version of the one my friend Leigh did) I am not allowed to:

Purchase any apparel, shoe, or accessory for myself for one month (Feb 1 - 28).  Conveniently I picked the shortest month of the year.  Also a month when I'm going to be out of the country for 1 wk +.

But I am allowed to (this is a psychological ploy - so I won't feel so restricted):

Spend money on personal care (haircuts, pedicures, massages, beauty products)

Purchase entertainment items (e.g.  books on my kindle)

Buy gifts for others


Unsubscribe to superfluous retail email lists

Stop browsing shopping websites

Clean out/re-org closet

If I'm desperate:

I have to go to a physical store to buy the item (which possibly may even mean paying full price, gasp!)


  1. you are a cheater. :)
    give up everything, but just do it for a week like i did.

  2. Lol - I can't do that Leigh. It'd be too hard. Baby steps.

  3. Oh Calina this is a great idea kind of like lent. Maybe I can give up shopping too for a month. I am going to think about the plan.

  4. Lol, yep - lent for shoppers.

    Let the cleansing/purging begin!

  5. I'm doing well too! No cheating yet - although I've been tempted!
