    This is the OFFICIAL No Purchase Club for OCTOBER 2012

    Do you need some help to be strong? Have you become too weak with your money on clothes? Well this is your chance to change this!
    You are coordially invited to take the oath to help save yourself from financial ruin.

    Take the vows. Commit yourself to a 31 day break from spending. Just think of the money you'll save. Will you do it? Will you try?
    Sign-ups begin today but the challenge will begin Monday October 01, 2012 and run to Wednesday October 31, 2012 at midnight.

    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.

    Who's ready to gain strength from the sharing? Who's with me? Arrrgghhhhh!!..... :satisfied::nodding::embar::happy::slayer:

    Edit- I have updated the Emergency & Maintenace budget to $150 (example- the cost of a full resoling)

    Awesome idea.

    But....uh...if I "officially" register October 4th, do I need to report things I purchase before then (like, say, today?)

    Good luck to all of you who do this. Yesterday, I successfully completed last month's version and the experience was rewarding on many levels. Thank you, MoL and the others, for your support.

    Maybe I will see you in November?

    MOL what's the ruling on exchanges? I bought a pair of AE prior to October and Just received them but need to swap them for a different size. I assume that's within the rules?

    I ordered some burgundy shell boots last month, so I definitely need to be in for October 2012. I even got a head start yesterday by sewing suede patches on the worn-out elbows of my tweed sportcoat. :nodding:

    MOL, I failed last time. I am going to fail this time as well, but I will put my name in again for the running of this as I definitely shouldnt be spending any money.

    I am going to LA from Oct 10-Oct 15. I will be spending money but I hope this thread makes me hesitate when making purchases IF i do. :slayer:

    This is the smallest turnout ever. Either everyone loves to spend or there are bery few people on SF.
    I'll extend the start time tonight (Friday Oct 05) at midnight (your time). Anyone else want to do this, now is the time to sign up.
    Any spending that occured unto this point will not count against you :) but at midnight, you stop.

    Wohoo! I have the rest of the day to shop! Given this caveat, I am in. I bought a few things earlier this week, but plan on stopping as of now. I hope I can do better than last month.

    I promise not to buy any unnecessary things, but I probably HAVE to buy a new pair of (Carmina) boots this month. I'm not in the NPC, but I'll do my best not spending.
