In an effort not to be the sulky girl who prattles on obnoxiously for 12 straight months about how hard it is not to go to an awesome sale at Aritzia, this post will focus on the good things that have already come out of my resolution.

Anyway who read my last entry knows that not shopping isn’t always easy for me (even though it’s sort of disappointing how hard I’m finding it). These past weeks haven’t been much more pleasant. In fact, a couple of days ago, I had what amounted to a weird fever dream about buying discounted trousers at Club Monaco. I actually woke up sweaty, which was a) very surprising because it’s really cold in Toronto in January and b) very upsetting because it made me realize my body and mind are having way more difficulty than I anticipated with this adjustment period.

Still, while overall the experiment has been a definite challenge, there are some decidedly good elements to it. It is those things that I shall now share below:
