How I Didn’t Shop For A Year…And you can too!

no shopping for a year

So I did this thing this past year. And I wrote about it on the blog and my close friends knew about it, but I realized that just not that many people read this blog. Therefore, a lot of people didn’t realize I was doing it.

This thing is that I didn’t buy any new clothing all year. I went shopping for the first time yesterday and posted about it on Instagram. And I guess that is where people read what I write.

The response to my post was instant and resounding. I had several private messages sent to me, as well as public comments on the post. They all basically said the same thing:

How did you do this?
What were your rules?
Was it difficult?
Can you tell me more?

So I decided (after some prompting from a friend) to write out a little guide, outlining exactly why I did this, how I did it, the challenges, what I learned, and tips and resources for how others could do it. Also! I included a page with journal prompts for people to reflect on why they might be interested in doing something like this!

It’s only $2.99 and 30% of the proceeds from this will be donated to the Clean Clothes Campaign, an organization dedicated to ensuring the fundamental rights of garment workers are respected all over the world.
