No Purchase Club (January -AND- February 2011) - Page 9

post #121 of 251
Want to report that I am still hanging in there.
post #122 of 251
Despite saying "Fuck it, I'm out". I've done alright. Bought 4 pairs of Mabitex with some proceeds from B&S/eBay sales. My only real "purchase" was turning my Darlton wingtips into a size 11.5 from a 10.5. I've passed up some great stuff in the last couple days. Hopefully I'm not kicking myself later on!

I've found I rarely kick myself over internet bargains. Often times what I find myself regretting is the full retail item I really really wanted, because I thought I would get an internet bargain... only to find out I couldn't.

I passed on some EG Chelseas in Dark Oak, which is a shoe I've wanted for quite a while. It may be a while before I see a similar price again. That's the only one I can think of that may haunt me. Overall though, I think I end up kicking myself most over the stupid purchases I make because at the time, I think its a great deal.

Well, I broke for real... NWT PRL sportcoat and NWT PRL cashmere sweater.

Well I had to take an extra 24 hours just to deliberate on this, I was so taken back.
The defendant may rise.
'cough*nice case*cough.'
'2 Mabitex + 1 amazing pratesi case = 3 violations.

I did take into consideration the case was purchased with funds generated from SF sales.
That is rather like 'trading' rather than spending, right? Well I suppose your new case can be given a pass, which removes 1 violation. Congratulations, you found a loophole.
I am also aware of this...

(I haven't even checked WAYWRN yet but won't be suprised if it appears there as well)
For this flagrant flaunting of weakness you should receive on of these ,
but I will pass that, on the grounds that the afore-mentioned case is just too cool

Now to the matter of the 2 Mabitex...
For this, you have no way out, and must accept 2 of these one for each violation.
You are officially now in the Dog House but still in the challenge.
You also now take the lead as weakest player, but take heart..the challenge is still young;
plenty of time yet for someone else to be even weaker.
It would be inappropriate within the context of this thread to congratulate you on your purchases,
but I do hope you enjoy them in good health. At least they were practical items.
Hope you got it out of your system now, so keep trying.
Trusting you find my assesment to be fair,

Raoul Duke, As you are not a member of this challenge, I would kindly ask you refrain from cluttering up this thread with weakness. We have many other threads for you to discuss new purchases so please feel free to list them elsewhere, thank you. Should you wish to join the challenge, say so, but you will have to continue to mid March. If you agree, say 'aye'.
post #128 of 251
heh you guys are awesome, I commend you for your hardwork. All these post-holiday sales can only encourage consumerism lol.
post #129 of 251
When I receive my items I'll post them,Now there will be little chance of straying out of the non purchasing brigade for the next 6 weeks, so the dog house is home for the remainder of the challenge! The keys to the chastity wallet have been hidden by my bank manager!

Great stuff! Baking soda is actually the best all-purpose cleaner out there, and it's dirt cheap - I've cleaned toilets, showers, cookware, counters, mirrors, and shirts with it.

If you've got a movie fix, check out your local library. Ours has an impressive collection.

EDIT: Still going strong.

Let's talk about what you guys plan on buying once NPC period is over. Maybe this will liven this place up?
post #133 of 251

I wouldn't even have gone in there if not for an SF-Heads Up/Bat Signal.
