What I Didn't Buy This Week

I'm thinking of making this a new feature, one that allows me to see exactly how much I would have spent if I wasn't watching the pennies.

This week marks what might be the end of the fall/winter sales--and the big discounts that often tempted me. This week, I resisted the allures of yet more J. Crew merchandise on 40% off final sale, Creatures of Comfort's Rachel Comey blouses at 70% markdown and some Rag and Bone sweaters and pants that were equally marked down. Conservatively, I think I've saved about $500 that I would have spent on all of the above. When time permits, I will pull some pictures and show you what I resisted...

This is a great idea. Sales are so tempting! I usually stay clear from them, because I find I make poor decisions on items i do not need.

Good idea for a feature! I am having similar thoughts myself. Getting an insight into someone else's decision making is helpful. I struggle with this stuff too, I own too many things that are not perfect, either not quite my style or so cheap that they quickly fall apart.
