Bought 5 polo shirts from lands' end canvas for going to the gym, $6 each. I don't really consider this a clothing purchase, more like underwear.

OK so my sunglasses are falling apart and in case you haven't heard there's no ozone layer down here... I'm seeking special dispensation for a replacement pair...

...Phuck it, I'll go blind for the cause and buy 'em in the autumn.

I violated the oath yesterday when I bought a few items from Land's End Canvas and their awesomely cheap sale prices. I figured the prices were too good to pass up, especially for something that would look nice and that I wouldn't care if I dirtied it up working outside. Fortunately, my will power returned before the end of the evening and I realized that I don't need any more clothes for working outside - in fact, that's probably what I need the least of in my wardrobe! I was able to cancel the order before it was actually shipped.

Well done M-P, I hope to be able to resist the urge for a new shirt or two whilst they are on sale, the will is there but it is weak!

Okay, so I just bought an engagement ring. Not sure if it counts as a violation, but I have no regrets.

I'll update the scorecard sheet later today. Sorry I've not tended to it in the last few days.
My SO's computer died and guess who has to tend to it.

I'm still going strong. My checking account has grown to $656. Just enough to pay March rent when March comes along. I'll keep adding to it with some more B and S sales. Optometry school is such a bummer like that.

I bought a couple of dresses for my gf, since I couldn't buy anything for myself.

Oh, and going to the gym every weekday so far. Feels great!

THAT'S THE SPIRIT!
However, if you have legitamite UV concerns, I will give this a pass as a necessity.
No need to screw up your eyes.

May I offer my Congratulations to you and your soon-to-be spouse!
As this was not for a selfish purpose, this gets a pass.
