30for30 challenge

 

so my only new years resolution was to be more fiscally responsible. And I think ’30 for 30 challenge’  along with Financial Peace course is just what the doctor ordered. while blog trolling i stumbled upon Kendi Everyday. She is the creator of the 30for30 challenge. Here is her description of the 30 for 30 challenge:

“30 for 30” simply meant that I would take 30 items and remix only those items into 30, (hopefully) stylish outfits.

The whole point of the remix is to show myself and readers that with a little bit of creativity, you can make what you have work for you.

Interested in joining in? If you don’t have 30 items in your closet, no problem. The best part of remixing is working with what you’ve got. If you’ve got it, let’s remix it. If you have more than 30 items, pick the items that make sense for this remix. This is a challenge to help you learn to shop your closet and to shop smartly. By being well-versed in what you already have, you will become a better shopper.

Here are the rules:

1. Pick 30 items or less from your closet. Shoes are included, but accessories and jewelry are not.

2. Remix the 30 items into 30 different outfits.

That’s it! Well not entirely so..

3. Don’t shop for 30 days. [the money you would spend on that goes to debt snowball or savings]

Why in the world would I add insult to injury, you ask? Because of two reasons: 1) so you’ll learn to shop your own closet and 2) so you’ll appreciate it. So many times I’ve run out and bought a new dress for one event or I bought something because I felt lacking and not what was in my closet. Obviously, this is not the best solution to a problem. I have found that when I limit myself with shopping, with 30 items, I become so much more aware of what I have versus what I need. By the end of the 30 days, I am ready to shop, but with new eyes of what I really need.
