Sign me up.

I have two shirts coming from Hemrajani, but I can't buy anything until the spring at the earliest. Wife is due in a week and looking to sell condo/buy house in spring. Can use all of the available cash I can muster.

I give my committment. I've learned, that if you don't look, you won't buy. The trouble with credit cards is that it disassociates the purchase from the paying. So no more pink jeans, SF comic relief will have to come elsewhere.

I'm in...In fact, I'm going to generate some income from my excesses over the next 2 months.

On edit: I have a few stragglers making their way in this month (shoes, sportcoat, pants, etc), but will not purchase any more.

In Europe the end of January means "January Sales" the Sale of Sales in some places. This is soo hard to resist !

Bingo.

This is the key to self control, in my experience. It means I need to stop reading SF, Will's blog, and other style sites as often as I do. But it's for a good cause. And I am staying out of B&S altogether. I know that, once I go in, I'm not coming out empty handed. Better not to go in at all.
