4 Weeks into my ban
Honestly, it’s not felt like a big deal so far.
I still look online and research things, such as cashmere sweaters, but it’s not really for immediate purchase, it is really information for when I’m ready and happen to come across one that seems to be perfect for me - I’ll be ready.
I admit though, bags still give me an urge to buy but I don’t feel like I need it immediately. Because I really don’t need another bag, let alone immediately. But again, I enjoy the research process. I do feel a bit hooked on Le Sportsac weekenders, ever since I got some last year, but I don’t even travel enough haha, so they’re a pass. And I think when I’m ready again, I’ll be purchasing a black Balenciaga Work bag. I’ve been attracted to that bag for a long time and if I manage to let go of enough, I’ll probably buy it. I’m at a point where I want to make sure any bag I add to my collection gets well used, and I can only do that with less bags.
I’m actually just enjoying seeing what else I don’t need in my wardrobe and what items I’m using to take the place of things I think I need or want. It feels pretty awesome.
