4. Rebecca from Mommy In Heels: “I want to purchase intentionally. But. And this is kind of a big but – I do like to try trendy pieces from time to time. With that in mind, I won’t spend spend a ton of money on trendy pieces.”
5. Lauren from Bohemian By The Bay: “If it no longer fits, begone! (That one is easy, stop trying to keep clothing that doesn’t fit, even if it is supposed to be motivation to get in shape. The best clothes are the ones that fit, no matter what size.)”
6. Alli from Absolutely Alli: “Clean out my closet and add a couple staple pieces that are timeless and versatile. What is more timeless than a little black dress?”
7. Tienlyn from Thoughtful Misfit: “Purchase quality designers and staple pieces you’ll keep for a lifetime. Don’t have the $$ to fill your wardrobe with designer duds? Most of us don’t, which is why I love sites like thredUp, where you can buy gently used designer beauties that are in excellent condition, for a fraction of the price. (Note my Céline turtleneck, which I scored for under $90.)”
8. Suzanne from Ask Suzanne Bell: “Buy and wear only what I love. To accomplish this goal, I must carefully choose what enters into my closet, as well as regularly purge what is no longer working for me.”
10. Stephanie from Sunkissed Steph: “Considering I can’t resist a good designer piece, buying it used is a much smarter investment— something I plan on doing a lot of this year.”
