I'm limiting the further accumulation of stuff a bit more than I normally would because of my upcoming trip. Not much sense in buying stuff that I don't NEED only to put it in storage in a few months! But I'm realizing, as summer approaches, that I actually do need some new clothing (and also to discard some old!), and also shoes (both for dancing and for walking around -- my feet are covered in blisters from the shifting footwear of the spring season). I'm not much of a shopper, but it's kinda exciting to think about getting myself some new summer dresses and a couple of new pairs of good shoes. I'll have to enlist Aileen, who's got a keen shopping eye, for help in this department.
