could you go a year without buying any new clothes challenge
I don't know if I could, but I would love to try. maybe I would go a year without buying from retail, but buying from second hand sources.
do you think you could do it?

Mmmm well this is a toughie. I hardly ever buy from retail but i LOVEEEEEE thrifty places!!! It would be hard to avoid them.... but I definately wouldn't run the risk of running out of clothes! heh. Still, I'm not so sure i'm strong enough for that kind of challenge yet! =)
I know, me too. But the idea of using what we already have, thats interesting to me
Yes it is. And it's a good idea! Especially if you got bored and revamped your clothes into accessories to help out! I guess a good place to start would be to clean out the closet and get rid of the excess, or sacrifice it to the revamping gods to be made into new crafty things, and start from there!!!
yeah, like old belts could become braceletts
no sorry i do revamp clothes but my size is hard to find at thrift stores and well there are no good ones near me i mean some of them want more than a retail store not happening if i was still in normal yeah cause good will was awesome
Yeah probably...I think I have before >_<
But I think I'd like to try that, like consciously.
it would take alot of comittment
I'm pretty sure I could, but I wouldn't choose to. It's nice to buy some new clothes every now and then.
I'm trying to but its really tough. It seems so ingrained to buy that its kind of like an achievement when you buy something. I am making a concerted effort not to buy new this year though as I cut my hours at work so my health has a fighting chance at improving but the drop in money is pretty significant. I'm on the bare minimum for me to survive now so rather than get down about it I have tried to make it a challenge and something fun. I'd love to know how you get on though.
yeah i went a whole year without buying really any clothes (i have a huge collection) but thats cause i was unemployed but when i work i buy work clothes and i don't have the time to fix sizing on thrift store duds
I am considering this, but I think I may be too weak
I don't think I could, but I could certainly give it a try!!! I would be VERY hard though...
I tried and failed
