Shopping Ban 2012

This is getting serious. I am running out of space and I have too many things. In some kind of crazy online shopping frenzy, I totally forgot what I ordered and came home to 5 packages! (This excludes the 2 dresses I have to collect from the tailor sometime this week, OMG! And I have 2 custom tailored dresses arriving soon from Bandung!)

I am officially putting myself on a shopping ban. This means no new clothes, accessories, shoes and bags! And at the same time, I will work towards ridding HALF my things so that everything will fit into my 1 closet again!

This shopping ban starts 1 August 2012 and will end on 31 October 2012. (Fingers crossed…)

Oh and no couponing either. EEKS!!


That’s a photo montage of the bursting closet, a hanging rail, a bag of clothes randomly chucked on the floor… And unseen are more clothes that can fill up 2 suitcases and THEN SOME!


I produced an indie music festival in Singapore for 7years before I moved to the US to be with my indie game dev husband Tom who made Axiom Verge and Axiom Verge 2. We live in Los Angeles, California with our son Alastair (named for Alastair Reynolds) and our dog Goliath (named for his size).

  1. Good luck with you clear out and shopping ban!! I’m getting a little short on space myself. But that includes fabric for sewing – I think I need more sewing with fabric, less buying fabric because I think its pretty.

    1. Thanks! I just thought of something frivolous – I might start a TRADE ME page with a list of things I want (not clothes, shoes, accessories of course) and then people can offer me their stuff for things listed on my for sale page!

  2. I hear you. I too, you know, have just one small wardrobe. For every piece of new clothing I make or buy, I need to get rid of one — that is my new motto for this year. (Need to blog about this, one day.)
