Shop With A Purpose (Get the FREE Planner Worksheet!)

I'm a big believer in shopping with a purpose. Of course it doesn't always work out that way, the inevitable 'I just went into Target for vitamins how did this happen' trip hitting me more times than I'd like to admit.

But when we plan our trips with intention, it can combat any potential emotional shopping and force you to get back to basics. 

How do you do this? 

First things first:

Write out a budget for yourself. Maybe you're in a position where it won't matter if you go over it, but if you write it down it will at least matter to you. Pick a realistic number for the budget you're working with.

After you've got a number, list things in your wardrobe you need.

Not want, but need. 

(okay, you can let yourself have a couple of wants) Maybe you could use some new blazers this season (I do) or a few fresh basics. Write it down. This may mean you have to take inventory of what's in your closet; don't stress over it. Take it one step at a time.

Once you know what you're looking for, list the best places to search- online, in-store, or both. These are the stores you frequent the most and find quality pieces from.

Each store is different and you may not find everything in one spot. Google is your buddy- if you're clueless, search the item you're looking for with the term 'under ____' in it. Under $50, under $30.. whatever best fits in your budget.

I know how tempting it is to let yourself get lost in the 'new in' section, but be disciplined with yourself. Make sure you stick to the plan, and if you have money left in your budget after you pick up what you need, THEN you can play around. But only then. 

So, how do you take these steps into action? I've made an incredibly easy to use shopping planner just for you! All ya have to do is download, print & fill it out.

Happy shopping!
