Noted a blog tittle as above from Chez Danisse (not a blog I follow, I just liked the thought). Just from trying to simplify my wardrobe and my home I know that not all of my desires are of necessity. It's more frugal to wear everything I have, than to look for items to add, desire the new, the latest recommendation or sale that other bloggers have found.
The real trick for me is to not add more. Metscan pointed out some time ago that if I don't go in the store, I won't be tempted. This has worked up to a point. I went into my favourite consignment shop to pick up some cash from my fall clearout and ended up purchasing one item. I never know for sure ahead of time, but I think it will be worn a lot. So an exception was made, even though I left the store first without it but went back for it!
A cotton tunic top with pintuck detail, brand Y29, too light weight to wear now, more of a spring item.
I have lots more desires. I was tempted by the Eric Bomben cashmere sweater sale, but I have lots of sweaters already. I want a Hermes scarf , but I have a whole drawer full of scarves, mostly silk squares, that are enough. I have one new pair of pants that have been waiting to be hemmed for weeks. Somehow I've managed with the others I have already, without feeling too deprived. Don't even get me started on yarn; I've got tons of yarn of all weights and colours but somehow I feel the need to order Schopple Wolle Zauberball Lace for a pair of socks. What I have isn't quite right, must purchase another colour/weight/size/style. It is endless! The lure of the new, the latest (passing) want.
I am resisting all of these duly noted desires for now. The cultivation of Enough feels better. Not necessarily less, just content with the current amount.
