What I Have Learned

3 Jan

These are the clothes I made this year.  It is strange to think that if I had not made this resolution I would not have made these clothes:

I might not have made these other things either:

Aleah was born in the Twin Cities and we lived there for over three years after she was born.  I loved buying her clothes and then when Sophi was born I loved buying both of them clothes.  Girl clothes are ridiculously adorable.  I loooooved shopping for clothes for them.  The mall was ten minutes away and it was a great place to take the girls on cold winter days.  I loved going to thrift stores and scowering the shelves for quality clothes for my kiddos.  It was fun having them match.  It was fun finding deals at stores.

I honestly did not thing I could make it a whole year but thought it would be good for me to cut back for a while at least.

This year has taught me to be inventive and use what is around me to make things happen.  My resolution has taught me that I do not need to run out to the store to fulfill what I am lacking.

I wonder how much money I saved this year.

All in all it has been a hard but educational and innovative year for me.  I will let you know when I make the big FIRST purchase but until then, thanks for your encouragement to me this year.  Couldn’t have done it without you =)
