I’ve heard it said that “shopping can become and addiction.”
Here are a couple suggestions for you fabric fiends out there:
1) Try scraping the ice from your car windshield in 7 degree weather in ONLY your undergarments (undies, bra, tee, socks, etc.).
Desired result: You will realize that you dont need something NEW…you just need something ON!
Negative result: You may be SO addicted to shopping that you will sit your bare bottom, and house shoe covered feet into the 5 degree Farenheit car with freezing leather seats and proceed to the nearest Macy’s, TJ Maxx or Marshall’s to pick up a new wardrobe.
2) Take a look at some homeless person that you tend to see as ‘less fortunate” and recognize their contentment. They arent worried about how they look to anyone. We tend to call them crazy when we see them talking to themselves and laughing and smiling, meanwhile the joke may actually be on US and we are the source of their daily humor and comedy relief!


About by Edreys

Edreys Wajed is a catalyst of inspiration and a walking enterprise of all things creative. The Buffalo native boasts a toolbox chock-full with talents and experiences ranging from a visual artist, jewelry designer and musical entertainer, to an educator and entrepreneur with notable recognitions respectfully in each. His approach in each endeavor is soundly unique, high quality and signature in presentation, having found his course as a creator early in life. As early as 14 years of age, when his mother invested in a pair of hair clippers for him, seeing as she could no longer afford to pay for his haircuts, Edreys taught himself the trade of barbering and soon began making money for himself in the basement of his childhood home. With his artistic ability he also began growing a client base and reputation for customized hats and clothes as well as logo design by hand, long before learning graphics in college. His creativity, craftsmanship and passion to inspire people are what drives his spirit of entrepreneurship. From having run his own stationery boutique and art gallery shared with his wife; touring nationally and internationally as a hip hop artist, Edreys is exceptionally diverse with his avenues of expression, including the fine craft of jewelry making, passed down from his father and master craftsman. Edreys is most recently recognized locally for his contribution as an artist on the Freedom Wall which features 28 civil rights dignitaries, 7 of which he painted with his unique style and use of line. “Creativity is my neighbor, I live by it,” says Edreys.

    I’m sure you didn’t intend your post to be a big statement on homelessness, but as a blogger for a homeless agency, I can’t help but notice you hit on a kernel of truth here. The gift of homelessness, if there can be said to be one, is that some deeper truths of our existence are revealed. After living on the streets, it’s easier to appreciate just having clothes rather than the exact styles they’re in. Even working at this type of place, I’ve come to feel comfortable in whatever I wear (and no, we’re not slobs here!), realizing that I’m not being judged. Good point!
