Shop Guilt Free & Feel Happier
Once upon a time I was convinced that you could never have too many clothes, shoes and jewelry. I loved to shop. I think it was a by-product of buying and styling hundreds of actresses and costumes over the years. There are usually racks and racks of clothes on set, more than could ever be needed.
Now though, I’m definitely in the ‘quality over quantity’ camp.
ARE YOU BUYING FOR THE RIGHT REASONS?
There’s nothing quite like finding an addition to your wardrobe that is a great deal, fits to a T, and feels like “you”.
However, many times we buy things that are less than perfect just because of the pop of pleasure it gives us.
You might find that once you take that new “must have” buy home and the initial thrill wears off, that it’s not so perfect after all.
Many of us fall into this trap because we didn’t buy for the right reasons.
Perhaps you feel that you have to project a certain image at work, which means buying the latest and greatest everything.
Maybe you’re just searching for something that will make you happy.
This ‘keeping up with the Kardashians’ mentality is not making you happier, healthier, or a better person.
So why do we insist on comparing ourselves to others?
KICK COMPARISON TO THE CURB
There’s a quick and easy way to start to kick this toxic mentality.
Anytime you want to buy something, even to smaller purchases, pause and ask yourself a few questions:
- In a year, will I still love this item and use it regularly? Will it bring more joy into my life?
- Is purchasing this item going to put any financial strain on myself or my family? Will it cause me to go into unnecessary debt?
- Why do I want this product so badly? Am I being influenced by someone else who has different opinions or values from me, or who doesn’t have my best interests at heart?
If the answer to even one of those questions is negative, then it’s probably not a smart purchase. However if you can confidently and positively respond to each question, then proceed to make your 100% guilt free purchase. 🙂
