Thou greatest enemy is thyself

I went shopping..

I think my shopping skills are improving by leaps and bounds. The latest example of my ability to sniff out a good deal was at Sixties Inspired Design Studio. There was a 50% off clearance rack of new arrivals (?? oxymoron..) of mainly outers. Got a white cardigan with a collar that drapes into soft folds for $25. The next day I swept up a black bell sleeved jacket $23, cream knit thigh-length jacket (for my next cold country visit – $30 only!) grey wool shorts $30, and a purple vintage skirt $20. Got the member card which entitles me to 15% discount. Then I went on to pre-order this jeans (size 26, I’m fat) that fit me like a glove. It’s rare to find a pair without that irritating gap between the waistband and back, since my waist hip ratio is about 0.75. Plus I have short legs, and that one didn’t have too much excess fabric at the ankles. And I bought another white cardi that broadens my shoulder and narrows my hips VISUALLY. Super. However, I had to forgo that grey flingy bolero and rich violet jacket cuz short of money and their design were inferior especially at the ruffles.

The Bottom Line
Find one of your more ‘together’ friends — ask them for ways you can get organized.

In Detail
Getting organized doesn’t have to be an excruciating chore, and it doesn’t have to take a long time either. Just go and find one of your more ‘together’ friends, offer them a sweet incentive to help you out, and let them show you their tricks and techniques for keeping the chaos of life at bay. They’ll love sharing this part of their life with you, and you’ll find that they have more than a few new ideas that you can integrate into your way of doing things.
