How Many Days Without a Clothing Purchase?

Okay...I've been thinking about this for a while. DO I NEED MORE CLOTHES?? One time I bought a pair of pants, brought it home, and discovered I already had that same pair-in the same size, so no excuse about gaining/losing weight. My closet is packed. Yes, I ADORE fashion, and love to have the latest looks, but with the both the economy and job security in the crapper, DO I NEED THEM?? What would I save per month if I just used what I have?

Inspired by my blogging friend Blythe Hopes Vintage's recent similar post, I'm going to act on this question - albeit passively, because I'll really be taking NO action. I am not setting myself a specific time frame, but I want to see how long I can go without purchasing a new item of clothing - shoes, and basics excluded. It will be tough with the season change approaching - I love fall clothes - but I'm determined to do this!

I just returned two pairs of pants and a sweater, so I guess I really started this past weekend...so that puts my start date as AUGUST 8, 2010. Think I can make it into 2011? (friends who have been shopping with me don't think I'll make it into September..but we'll see!!)

NO MORE NEW CLOTHES!! I'll keep you posted :)



  1. An excellent plan! Good luck - I know it'll be hard.

  2. I don't care to buy clothes anymore. Now things for my home? Yes! The way I look at it is, I'm home all day with the pets. Might as well dress casual and comfortable.

  3. Thanks Blythe...if I can get through the fall, I might make it!

    Brenda...I'm noticing that I want to go clothes shopping less and less...it's all about the flea markets & home decor finds!!
