spt challenge - shopping spree



But in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes. Benjamin Franklin

the very nice taxman (who is happy that you filed your taxes!) has given you a $100.00 'virtual' refund. you can 'spend' this money to update one item in your wardrobe.

what item do you choose? is it a favorite pair of every-day jeans that have gotten so faded they need to be replaced? do you need a new skirt because you've lost weight since last spring? how about exercise outfits? new shoes? a funky top for date night?

are you clothes savvy? or clothes shy? do you buy multiple versions of the same shirts in every color? do you buy 'outfits' or do you mix-n-match separates? what's the oldest item of clothing you have that you simply can't part with? will you blow the $100.00 on one fabulous item, or will you be combing the clearance racks??

don't forget, the 'virtual' refund is just for you!! indulge yourself!

This is going to be hard for me. It's good that it's only $100.

Angie said...

How fun...I am looking forward to this new challenge! Thank you!

Amberly said...

hmmm, $100 in free money... any chance you could actually mail it out for us to spend??

Elizabeth said...

Yeah, this will be fun. Oh why can't it be real money. I'm sure it will lead me to extra spending. But it is for the spt cause!

michelle said...

This will be a fun one! I'm on my way to the mall now. :)

Dana said...

This is a no brainer for me! I know what I want in 1 HOT second! In fact, I will have to go and buy it FOR REAL just, well, because I can :P

It'll be nice to do a very 'silly' SPT and not feel any pressure to be 'philosophical' about it!

Jenny said...

Oooh that limit is a hard one. It's hard to pick just one thing.

Susan said...

Sounds fun!

michelle said...

Ooh, I love shopping, even virtual shopping!

Laurie said...

This is an interesting one. It's really going to get me thinking - in a good direction. I need to think about my clothes more!

Cynthia said...

This is going to be a tough, but fun one. Whatever should I get? This is like the old fashion WHEEL OF FORTUNE and buying stuff within a limited amount of funds!

Kari said...

This is MY kind of challenge!!
Dang, wish I would have had my camera with me when I was shopping day before yesterday!!

Tina said...

Since my b-day is right around the corner, I was actually going to do some real shopping this weekend. I don't have $100 to spend, but $25 has arrived in the mail so far! I actually bought a new pair of jeans tonight from Costco - can't beat $16.99 for Levi's! I so need some new clothes! Well, I ALWAYS think that even after I've bought some! I think I might have a problem!!! :)

Ok....I indulged myself a bit too much today. So - just between the two of us, and in the secret lines of your comments - I'm not going to admit to as much as I did indulge. But I did get some great shoes that I will definitely show off for SPT!

Have a great weekend!

interesting!

Kim said...

I love your SPT photographs and challenges. I think it is something I would like to try. Funny, when I see everyone else's I think I could never top theirs...hence the word challenge I guess. So fun! Thanks for being so inspiring!

greetings from anchorage alaska :)

hi lelly: one more thing. after reading some of your SPTism, i added "SPT" to my 10apr post title and linked the beginning to your blog also. it was perfect timing how i happened to actually do a SPT on tue, 10apr and i didn't even know what SPT really was until tonight.

night :)
