NO PURCHASE Club for MARCH 2011 - Page 5

post #61 of 78
Thread Starter 
March 29 and 2 days to go. Time for the infidels to rings in. List your crimes. I will do a grand Slam update on the 31st. I apologise for letting life get in the way and not having attended to this thread 2 weeks ago, but I will do an official update. The challenge is still very much underway, and with only 2 days left, let's hear from the reast of you out there. As for myself, I have gotten through March with no spending and have sewn many buttons, and done some touch-ups on a few jackets (repairing loose threads). Thanks everyone. Also....................... Please ring in as to wether or not you would like an APRIL NP Club. As the weather gets warmer, the temptations will get worse, so if you need this club to continue, please say 'IN' for April.

Ed's Panta thread is killing me, but I only have 2 more days to go, so I think I can do it. I would love to try for April as well...I'm trying to plan a wedding for this fall and I need to save all the money I can, but at this point I'll have to say I'm out for next month. If I can make it through the whole month of March, then I think I can limit myself to just 1 or 2 items in April and not let my spending get out of control.

I haven't purchased any clothing in over 18 months. Got tired of big numbers on my CC bill.

I bought two suits, some shirts, and about 5 pairs of shoes this month!

Oh...and a pair of Panta trousers from Mr. Morel today.

If NPC doesn't work for me I'll have to delete my SF account and find a 12-step group.

you sound just like me.. i could never join this group though, i admire your willpower

may you go from strength to strength

maybe this is a violation, but I pm'd ed and was like, can I buy x and pay on the first? did i fail? otherwise, made it through this glorious month without a single purchase.

Not sure if that broke the rules or not....but I'm done for March now. It's the last day of the month and I made it. No way I'm in for April, there's a couple things I have my eye on that I will definitely be buying soon, probably within the next 2-3 days.
