    All good here. I'm finding that avoiding thrift stores and online window shopping has been very helpful.

    Bought the flannels I needed. Set me back right around $100 (as predicted). They were RLPL and originally $450, however, so I sleep well at night. Either way focused and back on track. Trying to go through the first of the year.

    Emergency: Needed to buy a new pair of jeans, an old pair I had got distressed(ripped) although they may still be suitable for SW&D type fits, cost was 120 yuan, think that's about 16 or 17 bucks(USD).

    I've been conditioning all of my leather lately. It is just taking forever....every belt, every shoe, boot, bag, glove, wallet, billfold, briefcase, jacket and coat.

    still on the wagon here. thinking about what might need some extra care this time around. I have nothing that isn't part of the normal maintenance cycle. I am thinking about learning to darn some old smart wool hiking socks. I have more than enough pairs. Just might be nice to learn something new. I do get the feeling this will be a one and only time sort of thing for me however.

    25 years of madness...this is what happens when things get out of control....

    Please...no questions on makes...it would take too long to type. As I stated in an earlier post, this is what happens when things get out of control....these photos show about half of my wardrobe. I am a sick man. Don't let this happen to you unless you have a stately mansion to store it all (which I don't). It takes me 3 days just to lotion my shoes. This is why I run the No Purchase Club..to help other souls stop themselves from commiting this insanity.

    Hope you guys are holding strong on this challenge.

    My no purchase will be gifts for eveyone else but I'll still buy something for myself[​IMG]

    Gift giving is actually stupid. Everyone should just buy their own gifts and then just show them to each other, that would be more enjoyable than opening crap you don't want and pretending you like it haha
