Hey, thanks so much Bride In Reverse! I appreciate your kind words.
My journey has been sorta funny — I wouldn’t feel so confident in my convictions about the benefits of a smaller, higher-quality wardrobe or in the process of buying and selling things second-hand if it wasn’t for being underemployed the last few years and not actually having much disposable income.
I sometimes wonder, when I do get a FT job again, if there will be a temptation to go back to a more frivolous, impulsive shopping pattern. But, I’m confident I’ve learned a better way, and have the discipline to shop smarter even with the means to be more carefree.
