OK. Someone asked me recently if I buy all the outfits I post on here. I had to pause a minute before I immediately laughed out loud. First of all, there is not enough money to purchase all the eye candy that I post on here. Secondly, as you know I am in the throes of purging and the idea of replenishing the copious amounts I have tossed would be totally a waste of time. Third, I have children and they have needs.
The term that sticks out to me is eye candy. I am a visual person and the images I find most captivating, interesting, and thought-provoking might be a lot of bank, but they are just images for thought.
I think that is the down fall for many. The instant gratification of purchasing and then the awful debilitating hangover of the realization of what have I done and do I really need this. The ping-pong discussion you have in your brain over the absolute no need for a majority of the materials we purchase.
I am so guilty of this. It has always been about the shoes, clothes and bags. I have justified the bags I purchase. I can hand them down to my girls. But that is even a stretch. So I went on a spending freeze and it has been exhilarating. So, when you see these fabulous outfits or furniture, the UPS man is not ringing my doorbell everyday.
It is all eye candy.
