To Help You in Your Non-Spending (Sort Of...)

This showed up in my in-box a couple of weeks ago (thanks Sofia), and I was intrigued...

"Recessionistas rejoice!Anthropologie stores around the country are hosting a series of reinvention workshops, teaching shoppers how to get more out of the existing items in their wardrobes. Past seminars have been devoted to making hair accessories, wrapping packages with scarves, reinventing plush toys, refashioning blouses and revamping last year's gloves and hats. To find out when the next one is in your area, check with your local store."

Now, for me, this is not a viable spending deterrent, as merely stepping foot inside an Anthropologie store at this point is pretty much a recipe for disaster, but it's a cool idea nonetheless, no?

It's a great idea, but I am going to stay away as far away as possible from anthropologie! too tempting.

We already know where Anthropologie has left me... But it sounds fantastic in theory...

Love this idea, but I agree I'm not too sure about stepping into Anthropologie... that's just a recipe for more spending!

I heard about this but didn't realize they were going forward with it. I think it's great, but yes...a spending disaster to occur!

anthropologie telling its customers to cut spending?? they're the reason we're in the wonderful rut! lol.

does it still count for the spending hiatus if you buy something with a gift card?

it's a great idea, but me being the suspicious person that I am, thinks that they definitely know that once you're in the store you're bound to find something that you have to buy after your free workshop. ;)...erinn

VERY cool idea! I hadn't heard about it... and unfortunately, I have to get my Anthropologie "fix" via catalog's and their website. But, yes... neat nonetheless. :)
