Do you subscribe to this lifestyle? What benefits have you reaped from practicing?
I can only remember a few times in my life when I spent so much money on non-essential, outrageous items (when my girls were younger, I bought boutique clothes/dresses on the regular). Now that my oldest is almost pre-teen ayaw na niyang matchy matchy sa mga kapatid niya. Yes I used to be that mom who looked homeless next to my well dressed kids. At least lahat kami ngayon pare pareho na lang
Things I practice now:
1)I tend to go social media free for a few months if I feel like it. I work in healthcare and I deliberately avoided FB in the last 6 weeks or so.
2) My wardrobe now consists of basic staples and lots of black/cream/grays - a few shirts, trousers, a few business casual attire then 3-4 holiday dresses (although I don’t skimp on running shoes and I buy 1-2 new pairs a year due to mileage)
3) Our kids get two gifts the entire year: one for each birthday then Christmas.
