Over the years, I have kept various sorts of "lists" to track of my purchases, cost per wear etc. They were in Excel files, PowerPoint decks, or written notes. I'm attempting this new format for 2012, keeping it visible on this blog to have an inventory of 2012 purchases with price information and date of purchases (link here 2012 Purchases). As I browse my bloglists daily, I'll also be reminded of what I have purchased so far with the hope that I'll be ever improving in making satorial choices.
I don't have a particular limit on the number of items to buy this year. My goal is to make better choices. That's it. No floor, no ceiling, no complicated rules or restrictions. Obviously I have to define what is indeed "better" for me, which means understanding my comfort zone, my life style, my aspirations. This is the process I'm happy to embrace this year: examine, evaluate and make adjustment accordingly.
P.s. I deleted the 2012 purchases list accidentally but I have created the visual "list" for Q1. I will update quarter by quarter.
