I've decided to go on a Clothing No-Spender Bender for the next 3 months - I started on April 1 (no foolin'!) and will go until June 30. That means no clothing purchases of any kind during that period - no modern day-to-day clothes, vintage clothes, shoes, accessories, etc. I have more than enough clothes in my closet, and I'm actually looking forward to thinning it out during this period!
As with any No-Spender Bender, I get a couple exceptions -
1. In June we're going to All Balboa Weekend (hurray!!) and we've planned time for checking out the Cleveland vintage shops - specifically, we're taking a flight that leaves stupid early in the morning so that we have shopping time. All spending rules are off on that trip, but I trust myself to not go crazy.
2. I might need a new pair of daily/work shoes. I'll try to make do with what I have, but I'm allowed to buy something new if I need it. Dance shoes are NOT allowed! ;)
3. Undies etc. - again, I think I can get buy with what I have, but I'm allowed to buy something new if I need it.
I'm still a little undecided if sewing and fabric purchases are off-limits or not. I'm definitely not buying anything for the stash, but I think it's okay if I'm going to use it immediately.
I'm really excited about this! I want to use the next few months to organize, save some money, and rediscover some pieces I haven't worn in a while. And since I won't be hunting for deals on Ebay and Etsy, I'll have more time to work on that!
