I like to shop. I make no qualms about my affinity for acquiring things great and small. Weight-loss surgery presents its own set of obstacles, I have to replace my clothes because I shrink out of them, it's an amazing reason to have to buy clothes, really. Having said that, my closet? It's slightly absurd. Amazing, but absurd all the same. So to combat said absurdity, I made this mini pledge to myself that I would not buy any clothes in the month of August. It's August 4th and I failed already. (insert sad sound here)
