Absolutely zero clothes shopping in 2018
« on: December 26, 2017, 12:57:39 AM »
Anyone else in for ZERO clothes shopping in 2018? No exceptions, no bending the rules.

I'm prepared for this to be uncomfortable and challenging for me. But I'm keen to make it work, and prepared to suffer just a little in the process.

I'm with you! I have so many clothes, they're just a bit too small for me. That'll motivate me to drop some pounds!

I would be in but "no exceptions no rules" would need clarity on one rule. Is this on ones self or what about your kids etc.. ? I know I could do for myself especially after my xmas gifts but my kids need things over the year from time to time since they do grow, or hope too!

I am down for this.  I only had one thing on my list to purchase anyway - new running shoes.  No reason I can't go ahead and order those now and start 2018 clean.

I'm not including my child. He's seven months old, there is zero chance of him wearing the same size clothes for a full year.

I'm coming up on my one year anniversary of the "turn the hangers around" exercise.  The majority of clothes hanging in my closet have not been worn in just about a year.  The purge begins in a couple weeks!

I am posting to follow. I'm aiming for 60-90 days of no clothes shopping to start the year off - basically doing a shopping detox in order to break the twitch (in the words of Anthony Ortega) and work towards more intentionality in my purchases.

I am in (already had talked with my fella about this..a 'no-shopping' 2018).

This will be a good challenge for me since I really crave variety but am dismayed by the environmental impacts of textile waste..so it's a good call to action

I was wildly unsuccessful in 2017, which means I am more than ready for 2018. There is absolutely NOTHING I need.

I'm feeling you! I'm actually doing a full No Shopping Year in 2018 (discussion in my journal of my "rules"), partly so that when I allow myself to purchase items in 2019 I'm starting from a blank slate mentally, and can make careful decisions around buying sustainable and ethical clothes and other goods. A complete break, and then a fresh start purchasing only in line with my values.

I'm also hoping that not buying any clothes or other consumer products in 2018 will help me to focus on reducing waste (mostly plastic packaging) associated with our grocery shopping. But that's a whole 'nother topic, and I'm already off topic in this thread :-)

Oh exciting, we are on the same page as you! We are mostly planning on a complete no shopping year as well (things will be discussed as they come up as we may want to purchase a canoe,etc ) but mostly we also want to move towards only buying things in-line with our values and this seems like a good re-set.   Clothing is a great starter and we are also trying to bring less plastic into our home, it's a great stretch for the creative mind.  Good challenge!

This is one of my new year's resolutions, with the one exception of buying new bras after I wean my baby. Since you said no exceptions, I'll just quietly lurk from the shadows. :)

I am in UNLESS I make enough success in the "lose weight 2018" challenge. If I get to the point where I have zero bras or swimsuits that fit, I'll have to buy those, but 2 of each, period.  I would have to lose probably 20 pounds for that to be an issue though, so until that happens, I am in.  Also, I have to have 2 pairs of jeans that fit (all I currently have at the moment), so if I have a casualty and only have 1, that's a non-starter for my job, since I wear jeans every day. If I lose SOME of the weight I have jeans a size down that should fit though. And then plenty of jeans (and everything except swimsuits and bras) 2 sizes down, which is the goal.

I tried to do the no clothes 2017 but failed. I did NOT fail as badly as I have in previous years so I feel like I made really good progress there. So, count me in until I have nothing that fits!! Honestly, if I really get these damned 20 pounds off and need to buy new swimwear, I will gleefully do so.

I'm in. I did  extremely well for about 3 years when I first tried this a couple of years ago. Wardrobe is now replenished, so I don't need much.  Unless, like Firehiker I loose an awful lot of weight.

I think I'll join the lose weight in 2018 challenge, that way I'm going to go well in at least one of the two.

I love this way of looking at it! Either I buy no clothes or I lose enough weight to necessitate buying new clothes. Either way is a win!

Sure, why not. I hate clothes shopping and I wear stuff that is several years old already. Broke down and bought a sweater a month ago to keep from freezing and it should last me awhile. I hated spending money even on that (and it was cheap!).
I'm up for the challenge in 2018.

Ok I'm in. But I really need to get some summer footwear that isn't havianas and doesn't slip off my feet (ie smart sandals) and I'm away right now so I'll have to start on Jan 7 :P

On the plus side, so you don't kick me out, I've realised that instead of shopping for more day to day t-shirt bras (I have three that have stretched & torn), I can first try and wear my fancy bras that never get an outing. No idea if they still fit but they are pretty so even though they haven't been worn in years I've never managed to chuck them out. Hubby will think I've taken a lover! Plus I've got two sports bras that I'll also wear more.

Iím in, except for bras. I refuse to wear an ill fitting bra and Iím still losing weight, so I will need new ones. Iíve lost over 70lbs already, and I have very little that fits properly, but as long as Iím still losing, thereís no point in buying anything new, plus I can sew well enough to get by until I stop losing weight.
Iím very lean now, so Iíll have to hit a point in 2018 where I simply stop losing weight because my BMI is already under 20 and canít get much lower while eating healthy. So Iím very excited to finally stay one weight and then in 2019 Iíll treat myself to a decent wardrobe.

I started gaining in 2009 up until 2014 when I started losing back down, so itís been almost a decade that my weight has been steadily changing and I havenít bothered really buying myself much clothes.
Itís been good training to realize how little clothes I actually *need*

I'm in! I spent $300 on regular clothes in 2017, and $300 on a winter coat. Looking over what I bought the vast majority was unnecessary. 90% of it was from thrift stores, so that is a bonus from an environmental perspective. But the things I needed to buy (dress for a wedding, clothes for a professional work environment) will carry over to the same occasions next year, so I think this challenge is realistic. When I told my SO about the challenge he rolled his eyes and said I will look like a hobo. Hopefully he is mostly joking. I figure new-to-me clothes aren't completely out of the equation though, I have long planned to start doing clothing swaps with my friends and this challenge will give me an incentive!

In 2017 I only bought socks and bicycle gloves.  Probably going to get more socks in 2018 and might need a pack of whitey-tighty underwear.

I was only planning on doing this challenge by myself but I told my husband and he wants to do it too. Woohoo!

The goal for the kids is no new clothes, but thrifted clothes are okay as necessary.

I'm in! A few years ago I combined no clothes shopping with only wearing items ONCE (work wear only & exception being black pants & shoes). I did it for 3+ months and only stopped because I missed some of my favorite clothes! I has PLENTY of clothes to do that, too!

I'm in until I hopefully get pregnant and need maternity clothes but until then I'm all set with buying more clothes!

I may do the "turn the hanger around" challenge as well. I tried that several years back and it was helpful.

I'm in too.  Although (or perhaps because) I buy almost all of my clothes secondhand, I have more than I need.  Looking back at what I bought this past year, there's a good bit more clothing than I expected.  I'd like to stem the tide, save some money, and make better use of what I already have.  I;d also like to be a lot more mindful about what I actually need, and make more ethical choices when I do make a purchase.

I'm also planning for a no shopping year for 2018, so it seems like I'm in good company.  That said, I'm also planning to do the lose weight in 2018 challenge.  Success in weight loss might mess things up a bit around not buying any clothing, but I'll deal with that later if I need to.

I will try my best. I feel like this should be easy for me as I literally wear a Monday outfit, Tuesday outfit, etc. every day of every week (which is very freeing and prevents me from spending too much time thinking about whether a certain item isn't flattering or isn't my style or whatever... I just put it on and am done with it)... but on the other hand I probably wear through my clothes faster than most as a result of such frequent wearing. We shall see.

I think it fantastic that so many people are going to join in and buy absolutely zero clothes in 2018. I'm excited to see how many of us can make it through the whole year without buying a single item.

For the people posting who are going to only buy one or two things, that's pretty cool! I wonder if maybe you need a thread for "only essential clothes shopping in 2018" or similar?

Count me in. I will replace my worn-out gym shoes tomorrow or Sunday and should be able to have a No Clothes Buying 2018 without any trouble. I started a shopping ban for 2015 and, with very few exceptions to replace worn-out items (and even fewer impulse purchases), have stuck to it. In three years Iíve spent less on clothes than Iíd spend on one random impulse item in the past.

It helps that I got back to my target weight during 2017, so everything in my closet fits again. Thereís no possible way I could wear it all, let alone wear it all out. Maybe Iíll make a side challenge to wear out two things (and not due to stressing them with extra pounds;)!

Anyway, itís lovely to have lost the desire to shop. I suppose it makes this challenge less challenging for me, but I appreciate having others to discuss it with. Most people just donít get it.

I just finished a full year of not buying clothing - only exception was outerwear for snowboarding that I only wear on the mountain and consider sports equipment. It was a great experience! I won't be doing it again right away but I just wanted to pop in and say good luck to everyone! Looking forward to reading about your progress.

This is going to be tough for me, but I am interested in seeing how I can adapt.

Thanks for the encouragement everyone :)

And now I will just lurk and cheer y’all on because I am buying myself a bridesmaid dress this year... and I’m not willing to NOT do that, so I won’t be buying zero clothes for 2018 - but if I can keep it down to one dress, that will be a huge personal success for me.

Good luck everyone!

So it looks like I have a minimalistic capsule wardrobe for summer (it is hot here), as i can sqeeze myself into only 3 dresses, 3 bottoms and 3 tops.

Being fat sucks.

Anyway, I love those outfits and I have plenty to run around the house. My exercise clothes fit me, so no need to complain.

Clothing swaps are the best! I also find I let go of things more easily when it might go to a friend.

On my Android phone, I downloaded an app (actually it's a widget) called Egg Day Widget (by Etienne Lawlor). It's on my phone's home screen now to show me how many days in a row I've purchased nothing that's non-essential. As far as I can tell, it will continue counting days for the whole year. I figure it'll be a nice way to see progress.

Related, there are other apps that count "days since..." such as sobriety apps. I liked the simplicity of the egg widget.

Oh no, slight obstacle... I am a mystery shopper and it often involves shopping for clothes. Sometimes you return them, sometimes some of the cost is covered and you keep them (eg I spent $10.40 before Xmas and got $10 back). I was just about to accept a gig and then thought, oh wait!

Iím in. Iíve been doing some wardrobe simplification this past year, and Iíve been wanting to wear out some things that arenít fitting my ideal aesthetic (but are otherwise in great condition) so I can replace them without guilt. 2018 will be the year to wear it all out.

I'm coming up on my one year anniversary of the "turn the hangers around" exercise.  The majority of clothes hanging in my closet have not been worn in just about a year.  The purge begins in a couple weeks!

OMG this is such an awesome idea! I'm going to turn the hangers around right now, and even hang up some folded things so I can turn the hangers around. We'll see what I wear! This is kind of exciting in a perverse way . . .

Absolutely no clothes or shoes purchases for me this year. Zero. Ziltch. Nil. I don't need a thing . . . not even for variety's sake. I will have to pack very wisely when I travel so I don't end up picking up a sweater or a swimsuit because I forgot to pack it!

I got my shoes turned around and about half of my hangers turned around last night, including hanging up all of my pants & sweaters. Wow, I have A LOT of pants! The sweaters situation is more lean . . . but there shall be no more anyway.

About 5 pairs of pants are clearly too small, and one almost new pair is even too big, so into the charity pile those went along with 5 pairs of shoes and a few other things I know I won't wear again.

I put a couple pairs of heavy weight pants that I think are just tight/barely too small in the rear part of the closet figuring I can try those again next winter. Aren't we all so confident that we will lose weight? I often do trim down over the summer . . . this summer I was somewhat lazy, but it is more fun if I am not lazy.

Stay strong, anti-shoppers!

OK, I'm going to try this again this year.  I failed miserably last year.  The only thing I could possibly need is a pair of pantyhose for a wedding I'm going to (already have the dress and shoes).  I know I have at least one unopened pair but like to have a backup in case of a run.  But I'll search the house to see if there's an extra pair around before buying one.  Wish me luck; I know I'll need it!

Count me in!
I think with the exceptions of running shoes & bridesmaid dresses I was pretty close to not buying any clothing last year.
