28 for 28 Remix Challenge

I was just thinking about how many clothes, shoes and accessories I own, including brand new items that still have tags on them. This is a problem. I NEED to wear what I have before I buy anything else. After reading about Kendi's 30 for 30 Remix Challenge, I decided to finally participate and try the whole "remixing" thing. Except I'm going to do 28 items for 28 days since it will be February. Okay, I know, I'm trying to make it as short as possible, but even 28 items for 28 days will be a challenge. And no shopping is allowed during the 28 days. Oh, and accessories don't count as part of the 28 items, but shoes do.

I can do this. I WILL do this. I think it will be fun, really. It will give me a chance to be creative and save some money...and more importantly, use all the new stuff I have. Unfortunately, I don't think I will be posting pictures of my clothes...maybe a couple items, but I'm not comfortable posting my picture. Maybe I can post headless ones. We will see. Anyone else joining in the winter remix challenge?

By the way, since I'm finally going to try this challenge (mostly in an effort to decrease my shopping and also to use the many items I already have), I'm also adding my own little twist. I'm not allowing myself to purchase any new makeup or other face products. This is partly because I bought makeup this weekend on my trip and don't need any more...and also since I realized how many different face cleansers, moisturizers, and masks I have. I need to get down to only one of each product.

Well, there you have it - my  shopping (more like no shopping) related goals for February.

  • No shopping (including clothes, shoes, accessories, makeup)
  • 28 items remixed for 28 days
  • Use face masks and face creams regularly (to use up what I have since I paid for it!)
Wish me luck!
