My Promise To Give Up Shopping for 365 Days Began At The Spa


About Jamie

How One Promise Changed My Life


Hi, I’m Jamie. My promises started on January 1, 2011 after I visited Lake Austin Spa Resort. …because I made a promise to myself. I was so inspired by taking care of myself at the spa I decided not to shop for 365 days and invest in my head, heart, body & soul instead. And I did it. I did not purchase clothes or shoes or other frivolous things (things I love mind you) for an entire year and wrote about it every single day. It changed my life, forever. Now, I am on year EIGHT, making a NEW promise every year! Want to learn more? You can follow my adventures at
