I should do this, but I know I can't.

yes, really. I looked through my closet at the barely worn clothes, and through it should be no problem.

I actually plan on reading the Official Sales Alert Thread daily to see just how strong I can be.

You do realize that's eleven months into the year, right?

Five days down so far!

Yeah, I think 11 months would be one hell of an accomplishment (and I'll be very impressed by anyone on here who achieves such a level of restraint)....but it's still not the full 2012 year that is the stated goal of the thread. That last month is the toughest in my opinion as all the FW stuff starts going on sale and getting really cheap. I know I tend to buy way more FW stuff than I do SS.

I'm just giving you a hard time, I think it's a great thing to strive for even if you don't think you'll be able to carry through 100% of the way.

I signed up for the January one and I'm already having trouble with that...couple of shirts I've been wanting for a while are for sale real cheap on the sales forum....but I'm holding back, I'll make it through January at least. Taking it one month at a time for now.

I know what you mean. SS for me is jeans, t shirts, and a few shirts. FW, on the other hand, has an endless possibility of knits, outerwear, boots, etc. I try not to live by too many absolutes, but we'll see how far this goes...

What a joke. This is like posting a 'no jerking off' thread on an internet porn site.

It's more like "jerk off to the porn you already have"

I'll try to do this. I'll probably last until some non-jean pants catchy my eye.

I wanna use 2012 to save money and visit NYC or maybe a trip to europe, but not kopping for a whole year is impossible. Not kopping for a month is already difficult, imagine that times 12 ffffuuuu.gif

Lol I'd better clarify. Coming up in March I've got a church wedding in Australia and the traditional banquet wedding in Singapore ... with the same girl though.

I'd like to be in.. though my money would just go somewhere else.. Then again I did just buy something yesterday. I tried something similar last year and only lasted about 5 months. Then more than made up for it in the last 7.

This.

The best I could do is a "spend no additional $" year. I.e. sell something I own, and buy something with that money.
