I don't typically have a tangible item that motivates me - not even a beautiful bridesmaid's dress that I'm wearing to my sister's wedding this fall - but I think I've found something.
Purchasing a "lot" or "bundle" of clothing in my next size down on ebay or craigslist! I was talking to a friend about purchasing smaller clothing sizes at thrift stores, and she suggested the idea.
Go to ebay, search women's clothing for "lot" and your size, be sure to check "search title and description". There are some fabulous finds, and it's kind of fun because they go cheaply and it's like a grab-bag.
I was told to be careful about shipping costs, though.
Anyway, that's my latest motivation.
As soon as my 18Ws are too baggy, I'm placing bids on lots of 16W clothing. Hmm, maybe I should turn around and sell some of my too-big clothing this way!
- Has anyone done this before?
- What other things are people doing for motivation and rewards these days?
