- Learn how to sew. I'm going to get serious about it this time. I really want to learn, but I never seem to have the time. Well, I'm going to make time, and I've heard learning how to sew is pretty simple. I've checked out this book from the library called New Complete Guide to Sewing, and I haven't even cracked it open yet. I guess I should start reading, huh?
- Shop my closet more. I need to stop being lazy and dig deep into the closet and start putting together some new outfits with pieces that I'm bored with or are pushed way in the back of my closet. Here's a great video that I found on shopping your closet and putting together outfits with a few simple pieces.
- Deal or no deal. This year, I'm going to think long and hard (okay, not really that hard) about something before I purchase it, especially bargain finds. Don't get me wrong, bargains are always good, but you have to ask yourself a few questions before you buy. Do I need it? Will it go with a lot of items in my closet? How often would I wear it? A deal isn't a deal if it's just going to sit in the closet.
- Continue brown bagging it. I'll admit, there are some days where I just want to go to the nearest fast food joint and grab a quick lunch, but lately, I've been resisting the urge. For me, eating out everyday for lunch has gotten really old (not to mention expensive), so I'm bringing my lunch from home. Besides, homemade is better and a lot cheaper anyway. One time out of the week wouldn't hurt, but everyday? I don't think I'm going back down that road. I have too many unwanted pounds to show for it, lol.
