Alright....better late than never.
Here now, is the
OFFICIAL 2012 NO PURCHASE 'SAVE FOR SUMMER' CLUB

Hopefully you have all gotten it out of your systems over all the Christmases and New Years'.
Now it is time to buckle down and save for summer, while there is still time.

This will be a long but rewarding stretch.
START DATE: Monday APRIL 09, 2012
END DATE: Thursday JULY 05, 2012 (11:59pm)

Sign-up is encouraged a.s.a.p.
This is how it works, and you will like it.

Rules are simple;
By signing up here you agree to spend NOTHING on clothes, accessories or any clothing-related items for yourself until the challenge expires on date above.

You must get to work and mend, sew, polish, etc your existing items and report in.
This is the time for Spring Maintenance and saving $$$$$.

These are the exceptions, if you must:
You MAY purchase for others during this time but only from the Styleforum Buy & Sell area..
You are encouraged to sell or trade items. The point of this challenge is to save or generate money for your summer fun.
All trades or purchases must be truthfully reported.

For the super weak:
You MAY purchase ONE ITEM ONLY for yourself during this period but only from our Styleforum Buy & Sell area.
This one time allowance should be used with the greatest discipline. It is your choice to use it right away, a week or month from now or even on the last day of the challenge or not at all.
This one time purchase will NOT be held against you but must still be fairly reported.

If you choose NOT to make a purchase from the Buy & Sell then you MAY transfer this allowance to any alterations or shoe repairs you may be in need of, I say again, in need of. This also must be reported.

Could this challenge be any easier?
Now who among you will man up and take this challenge?
Who's with me??????????AAARRRrrrggghhhhhhh :):D :slayer: :happy::foo::nodding:

I will compile the list of the brave on Tuesday April 10, 2012
Lastly,
I would like to encourage those of you who are not yet members of Styleforum to take 5 minutes and sign-up.
Alright everyone...let us see how this one goes. :)

I will also participate in my own way as I am too weak to go full-bore.

For myself, I will allow alterations to current clothes and repairs; I need some serious taking in around the waist on SCs and pants. Not sure how long I can last and I might need the wiggle room you provided with the one purchase from the sales forum....
Also, I am extra weak so my challenge will end on the 29th of June as it is my birthday.

This ought to be fun!

I'll enter this, I have enough shoes for now and I'm a 44 going on a 40, so I try to stay away from clothing purchases anyway, this'll be the final end to things.

^^ Behold the bravest of the brave ^^
I am sensing all the regular suspects are trying not to see this thread :)
3 months will go very quickly if we busy ourselves with other things. Who else seeks to be purified? We shall see......

Excellent guys. Count me in - just received some pants from alterations today and I'm good to go!!! And there is the trip arranged to Milan in mid July so this is perfectly appropriate for me. :satisfied:
Although - must verify - I assume the purchase of regular eyeglasses (not sunglasses) does not count?

I may start a thread called the "Purchase More Club," where members commit to spending more money each month.

Lord help me, I'M JUST A MAN!
I'll do it if Spoo does it.

Nah you're already in and you know it. In fact your presence here may inspire the Spoo :)
You both could do last years spring rotation and look more fabulous than anyone around you and you know it.
