Spend it wisely
sometimes when i'm shopping, i come upon a perfect item unexpectedly, and regret not waiting for it, lamenting the lack of space, need or money. sometimes there is a drought and i actually actively try to find something to want. while i may daydream about a huge shopping binge (provided by the perfect selection and the perfect lottery win, i think i'm most content picking slowly over the course of the year, which is what i do anyway. the one stand-out advantage to a binge is the idea/feeling of starting with all pieces equally fresh, new, appealing, wonderful and perfect. sometimes, layering a new perfect item over an older favorite elevates the senior piece, but sometimes it makes it pale in comparison.
which would you rather, have a giant shopping binge for the entire year, all at once, buying everything you think you need, and then that's it, for the whole year, or be only able to buy 2 items max. per month, for 12 months?
