◕ ‿ ◕ 2013 APRIL No Purchase Club

It's here at last!
The OFFICIAL NO PURCHASE CLUB for APRIL 2013


Start Date: Monday April 01, 2013 (00:00:01 am)
End Date: Tuesday April 30, 2013 (11:59:59 pm)

Sign-ups begin now.
All who sign up before midnight Sunday March 31, 2013 are allowed a $100 emergency fund.
All who sign up Monday April 01, 2013 are allowed no emergency fund.
There will be no late sign-ups accepted after Monday April 01.
You have plenty of time to prepare and-or spend to your hearts content beforehand.

No Coupons. No spending on any clothing-related item(s) for yourself for this period of time.
You may not have anyone buy on your behalf or accept any clothing-related gifts unless your birthday falls within the challenge period.
You must perfom repairs or maintenance yourself on your existing clothing during this period at least once. Example- shning shoes, sewing buttons, etc.
Dry cleaning or other paid repairs cannot exceed your emergency fund limit.

This is the first official NPC club for 2013

Can you do it?

Once again, I would like to invite the weak, the helpless and hopeless to gain strength from joining this club. Also, I would like to encourage all non SF members to take a minute and join our beloved forum and participate.

I for one, am IN. Who else dares to take the challenge??
ARRRRGGGGHHHHhhh.....

What if I am buying clothing for others? I have a small number of people who are trying to find employment and I locate job and interview appropriate clothing that I donate to their efforts.

Additionally, and to all participants:
Any spending failures (purchasing something for yourself during the challenge) must be reported,
and the monies spent must be reported, all truthfully.

Any credit notes that will expire during the challenge may be used, provided you do not exceed your emergency fund limit beyond the credit notes worth.

Sounds alot of fun. No chance of qualifying: I've new shirts under-construction, suits and pants under reconstruction, shoes under repair and more shirts subject to major alterations. Four different tailors/ cobblers can't suddenly 'down-tools'.

However, I really need to learn how a needle and thread works, fascinating technology.

Pay now. Or have someone hold the money in escrow.

Due to an upcoming, and undoubtedly expensive, move to another continent, I may have no choice but to participate. I'm in!
