So am on a blogging mood today, as you can see!
I feel like if I were to explain myself to myself it would still baffle me. Like it would very easy and very strange and tough at the same time. And I will tell you in a moment why.
So not many posts ago, I went on and on about how I loved Birchbox and how I compared it to a little Christmas every month.
And this morning, I just went online to my account and canceled it!!
Too many exclamations.
So the easy part of the ‘understanding myself’ bit is I meant every word of what I wrote then. I enjoyed getting a little novelty box full of feel-good deluxe samples every month and talking about it with my friend ,sharing pictures and all that. No two ways about analyzing that emotion.
But there was this new debate I had been silently having in my mind, probably at the same time as my ecstatic emotion, about how in all honesty, I had not gotten much practical use out of it. I mean yes, I did get some almost full-size products that already were more than the entire box itself but really a) no product worked out for me like a charm and b) what am I going to do with a hand full of samples?
I would much rather save $10 a month and instead save up and buy clothes. Clothes are my weakness. And these days I have also started to want new shoes, and bags.
So there! I feel stronger for resisting a huge temptation. And I do not even feel bad.
It was great while it lasted 🙂
Here is a fun photo-grid I was experimenting with.
