    Made it through the weekend unscathed :slayer:
    That's two weekends of restraint in a row :fistbump:

    Damn, almost half way through. Time is flying too fast. No spending over here but I am weakening on several pair of boots....I really don't know how much longer I can hold out.

    Dammit man.. this club is having a reverse effect on me. Instead of bolstering my resolve, I'm starting to reason with myself "Well, all these OTHER guys have faltered..."

    Still in the clear. Getting my clothes fix by shopping for my kids. They are benefiting from this no purchase thing anyway!

    Man these 2 weeks went by really quick.

    managed to clear out some stuff from the closet on ebay, and have some more that haven't been listed. I have a window filled with tabs of stuff to purchase, but I think I can make it another 2 weeks. This is actually helping me from making a lot of mistake inpulse buys including some very questionable armani collezioni jackets from neiman(wtf was I thinking)

    Quoddy finally got back to me on some MTO navy Chromexcel chukkas with a deck sole for when I go visit my retired parents' canal boat in Amsterdam.

    It's possible that I won't order them in the next two weeks... maybe?...

    Yeah, just pulled the trigger. Dropping out of the October edition. I'll try again next month.

    More fail.

    HF suit on sale for: $300
    Tailoring costs for two odd jackets purchased before the 5th (so the jackets themselves shouldn't count against me): $200

    And the HY tie already reported: $80

    I bet I can finish the month without going over $700.

    :embar:
