I think I will have to go for a longer moratorium-- like a quarter long? There's a lot of family stuff going on this summer that requires me to buy new clothes for events. My husband thinks it's okay for me to make those purchases, but I have been asking myself "gosh, do I need another green top?" Haha.

What helped me put it into perspective lately was re-evaluating my wardrobe. I took out all of the items I no longer wear or don't like, and estimated the dollar amount. I couldn't believe what it was...:/ What I might do to recoup a little bit of the cost is sell it to consignment and then save that money. I want to avoid rewarding myself with more clothes if I make it through a moratorium.
