    It's Tiiiiiime! :)


    2013 OCTOBER Official No Purchase Club
    Start Date: Tuesday October 01, 2013 (6:00 am)
    End Date: Thursday October 31, 2013 (11:59 pm)

    Old hat to some...new to others..
    The challenge: You must go 1 month without spending money on clothes or clothing-related accessories for yourself.
    The club is designed, not to undermine the economy, but as an aid to help the weaker of our distinguished memebers (and onlookers) to develop self-discipline in spending.
    Sign-ups begin immediately. Those who sign up before the start date will be able to allow themselves a $100 Emergency fund. Those who start after the start date, will be allowed no emergency fund and no mercy.
    The complete rules will be posted Sunday night.
    You have now, one last weekend to get your buying out of your system before we begin.
    I would like to encourage one and all to give this a try if you feel the need, and also, I would like to welcome those of you who are not yet Styleforum Members, to take a few brief minutes to sign up to our beloved forum and participate!

    Claghorn has graciously agreed to do the Movember club and I am sure he will ring in on that later in this thread near the end of this challenge.

    NOTE: As of present, I have not decided on a theme for this months club, so when you all ring in, if you have a theme you would like to see (if any), please also specifiy this.
    That is all for now....so, are you ready? Are you weak? Do you need some help to stop the madness? Help is here!
    Who dares to take this challenge?!
    Who's with me?? ARRGGHHH :slayer: :) :satisfied: :embar: :cloud: :decisions: :brick: :hide:


    I am IN.

    Good to see you back Goat. As the first of our signees, you get to buy whatever you need for a Hallowe'en costume for yourself, if the need exists.

    i'm guessing taking clothes i already to the tailor counts as spending money on clothes. if not (actually, either way), then i could use a little asceticism.

    If you have need of tailors and/or cobblers, engage before the start date, for these would count against you during the challenge period.

    In. I managed to get most of October's purchases out of the way and can probably hold off on the rest. I also submit my services as a judge, enforcer, and janitor.

    I am in. Going on overseas holidays in November and can’t actually afford to buy anything right now. So hopefully it will be a easy month.
    Damn AE needs to stop their 2 sales a month policy .

    That you know they have frequent sales should make it easier to resist their sales. There will be another one. And another after that.

    Thanks, another day done no spending.

    Not a big dresser for Halloween, suit supply's big gangster pinstripe suits would look well though :)

    Sadly, I'm out for this one. Steed is coming to Chicago and I've been meaning to try out their MTM option.

    Where is everyone else? This thread should be brimming over already. (wishful thinking).
