Result – 30 Day No Shopping Challenge

 As you all know I have been on a 30 day no shopping challenge for the last month. The first few day were a bit rough on me because of constant temptations at work and having to repeat myself over and over to co-workers who kindly would show me all sorts of deals and things I would usually buy in a second. As I power through the first week and spread the word about my no shopping challenge I found it that my friends were quite supportive and at times of weakness quite helpful with being the little voices in my head…. “you’re not suppose to be shopping!!!” or “Do you really need that??”

Week 1 – 30 Day No Shopping Challenge

 As you all know I have started a 30 day no shopping challenge to practice the art of simple living, self-control and putting needs over wants. I have to admit, it has been an interesting week so far, keeping away from malls and having mental reaffirmation on why I don’t need to buy the attractive piece of whatever it was in my hand. Lucky for me my some of my co-workers have read my post about this challenge and are happy to keep me in check. So the one tip from my first week would be to let your friends/family/co-workers or whoever else is around you know about what you are up to. Having a support group helps you to build a confidence you need to power through the challenge and to inspire them to start a challenge on their own. Cheers to a successful first week and to a great support group! Solmaz
