    Not buying any clothes 2017 2nd Jan 17 at 7:27 AM
    Hello, wondered if anyone would care to join me on a challenge to not buy any new or second hand clothes for 2017? My reasons for doing this aren't just for saving money but also to cut down my consumption and to be happy with what I have.

    Well done. It's hard getting started but then it gets addictive.

    I have officially failed at not buying any clothes. I was looking at my winter jumpers and I noticed they all had felted patches on. Realised it was where my back brace was rubbing (fractured a vertebra last year and was in a back brace for three months). The felting was too bad to get out with one of those debobbling brushes. Shops are getting their autumn stuff in so I was able to get replacements in the colours I wear most often.

    it is addictive, the only thing I have bought is my daughters uniform but this isnt in the money that has be counted! but it felt nice to go into town and buy things for her. I still havent bought anything! I am amazed at this little project of mine, spending diary is very slim now which again, amazed at this too!!!
    Autumn isnt my favourite time of clothes buying i always think that the shops dont really offer much but its the winter I love!
    i have made the pledge though and up to now I am finding it easy to stick to it!
    not sure which shops you like, but I do know that they are some lovely jumpers out there, but if you can wait, they get more in around November!
    Aim to be debt free by 43 realistic is by the time I have finished being 43!!!

  • Ah these care free days of watching #ENG score 5 goals in the first half of a World Cup match. It reminds me of... Never.
