    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.

    Forgive me MOL for I have sinned... Found a pair of Alden 686 loafers in very, very lightly used condition at the Thrift store for $7.99 and I couldn't resist!

    I shall try to be stronger for the rest of the month.

    In, except when Jamison releases his overcoats for Howard Yount. Needs one of them.

    Apologies to all. I have been very busy over here. The thread has not been abandoned.

    We are underway! and I wish all who joined, best of luck and strength this month.
    Do not spend on clothes.
    How did everyone get through the first weekend?
    I have spent not one cent. Any confessions?

    My wife and I visited relatives several states away and we drank an awful lot. It's tough to type a credit card number into the online form when you've gone cross-eyed from the consumption of gin and excessive noontime brewery tour samples. :nodding:

    Understood a lot of you consider clothes with something of a passion, but does it not worry you when you need the discussion forum equivalent of an AA group to curb your spending? Or is this more a self-disciplinary measure, where you often spend a lot but you have wealth enough for it not to matter? I'm curious to know to what extent the more dedicated among you are prepared to sacrifice for a better wardrobe.

    I did not sign up officially but this thread inspired me to take it one week at a time. Happy to announce that no purchase was made last week.

    We shall see what lies ahead this weekend...
