I’ve admitted that I’m a champion shopper who thoroughly enjoys the thrill of adding a new piece to my wardrobe on a rather regular basis; but this brings up the obvious question…how do I make room for it all??
My husband and I live in a one bedroom condominium; we have no basement, no attic, and no “spare” room that I can use as secondary closet space. I’ve also limited myself to a set number of hangers for my clothes…which basically means that whenever something new comes home with me, something old needs to, ahem, leave.
Of course, my entire wardrobe is not in perpetual turnover; I’ve held on to a number of favourites for many years. But when I get tired of a particular item – or when I replace a well-loved piece with a “better” version – the castoffs are carefully packed up and taken to a local charity to be re-homed.
Rampant consumerism, you say?! I suppose I could be accused of that. But here’s the deal. I’ve never smoked and I rarely (like maybe once every other month) drink alcohol. Because of my food sensitivities, my hubby and I hardly ever eat out; and we share one 9-year-old vehicle…which we bought used.
So, I think this girl has a right to indulge in some regular retail therapy of the fashion kind!! After all, nobody’s perfect, right?!
