    Initially, my reaction was "yeah! What FCF said!!" But then I thought about it. Going for a few weeks without detergent will very rapidly make you socially unacceptable. Going a few weeks without polish probably wouldn't.

    Hey, FCF, if I give away my cream and brush to you, would you be willing to give me something of comparable value and use?

    Hmmm.... If I buy something and give it away to you and you buy the exact same thing and give it away to me - we haven't broken any rules.... I think we just found a loophole in the system! :devil:

    laundry detergent may very well be off-limits, though you could easily buy one of those large tubs before the NPC starts. Even if you join for consecutive months, there is always a weekend or so between months where you are allowed to spend. An alternative for detergent is for your spouse to buy it for the family. You would just use some of the family's supply.

    I must say I am impressed with your ingenuity and will be happy to incorporate into future NPC rules, the phrase 'acquiring clothing or clothing-related items by any other means' to future club rules. Thank you sensi. :) ..please keep the suggestions coming... :lurk:

    bah, we will find loopholes just as fast as you will close them.

    My coworker took the brush but wouldn't take the shoe cream. It's the thought that counts, right?

    I'm still in. Polished a couple pairs of shoes and got some cleaning done. I'm actually holding off on some basics because of this (socks, more shoe cream, suit brush :embar:). It helps that I suspect the wife is plotting some clothing related gifts for Xmas.

    I was helping a friend look for hard-to-find toys online and in store for her 6 years old, that sort of help filled the gap. :satisfied:

    Within the bounds of the law. No money/sexual favors have changed hands/bodily fluids.

    Technically, you are not in breach of the rule. Nevertheless, you violate the spirit of the NPC. [​IMG]
