➲ 2012 SEPTEMBER NO PURCHASE CLUB

post #1 of 173
Thread Starter 
This is the OFFICIAL No Purchase Club for SEPTEMBER 2012

Are you a clothing whore? Are you weak with money? Do you need some help to be strong? Well this is your chance!
Quote:
The rules are simple. By signing up here, you agree to the following terms:

1) You will spend not one penny for the entire month on any clothing or clothing-related item(s) for yourself.
2) You will perform some form of maintenance on your clothes/shoes (sewing buttons, polishing shoes, etc)
3) If you sign up before September 01, 2011 you may allow yourself an emergency fund of $100 and no more.
The emergency fund is to be used only in the event of a true emergency; a funeral, wedding, or some socks/underwear, etc
4) Should you fall and make a purchase you must report the purchase here. You will then resume the challenge to the end of the month. No need to report an emergency purchase. At the end of the month, we'll do an official score card.

NOTE:
  • If you sign up Sept 04 or later, you are allowed NO emergency fund at all.

I will tabulate the official list of participants on Tuesday September 04, 2011.
At any time during the month, should you feel weak, use this thread so others may help talk you out of a purchase.

Take the vows. Commit yourself to a 30 day break from spending. Will you do it?
Sign-ups begin today but the challenge will begin Monday September 03, 2012 and run to Sunday September 30, 2012 at midnight.
Who among you is brave enough to try? peepwall[1].gifffffuuuu.gifuhoh.gifblush.gifcold[1].gif
If you are not already a Styleforum member, I would like to coordially invite you to take 5 minutes to join our beloved forum and participate.

I am definitely IN.

If it is good enough for MOL it is good enough for me. I have been wanting to try this challenge for a while now.

Good timing for me - Sister's wedding is on the 1st, and a conference mid-month means I need to save

I always forget...are professional alterations on current inventory permitted?

I don't want to do this, which really means, I should do it. Ugh... I'm in.

Question.

If I ordered a few MTM items that would be potentially coming in September but were ordered in July would that qualify as a purchase? If so I cant participate even though I would definitely want to participate. I havent paid for them yet so I guess no but I am looking for a potential exception smile.gif

^ He's ordered pre-September and just hasn't paid. Surely you'll give this man a break. Let him in! Let him in!

Carry on.
