No clothes shopping - March 2017
« on: March 02, 2017, 03:06:12 PM »
This is the third month of our installment gauntlet. I had decided that for me, trying to set the goal for the whole year was overwhelming.  I am setting up one new gauntlet per month in order to get through the year.  Jump in or out as you see fit.  Maybe some people will go with me for the year.

So my no clothes shopping for me is clothes buying for myself.  I do not count my kids or my husband in this gauntlet.  The issues with clothes buying are my own and not my families issues. (Honestly, if my husband agrees to buy new clothes, I'm thrilled, I think it last happened in 1999 :) You may run your personal no clothes shopping gauntlet the way you see fit.

So who is in for March?  Are you trying for the whole year with me?

29 days left for March (304 days for the year)

I am in with one exception:  I have to attend a function at the end of March and I went ahead bought a dress to wear to it because I couldn't think of what else to wear.  I only own one other dress at the moment and for a variety of reasons, it was not suitable for this function.  I will wear shoes and jewelry I already own with the new dress.  Other than that I am definitely in.

I'm in!  Got through Jan and Feb pretty well.  May have to buy a bra but shouldn't need more than that.

I have already failed in March, but I am in for the rest of the month. I had not bought anything for myself since last October. This past weekend, we went to Vegas for my son's participation in an elite rugby tournament. Unfortunately, we had just been through Vegas the previous weekend after skiing and it was freezing, so I erroneously packed for cold weather without checking the forecast. After sweltering all day the first day at the tournament in the lightest top I brought, I bought a lightweight, short-sleeve top for the second day, and a pair of flip flops (I had only brought the boots I was wearing the day we left home in chaos). I did have shorts I had brought for wearing if we went to the pool at the hotel, but no short sleeve shirt. I am pretty disappointed. I mean, it was absolutely not a case of "oh I want xx" which is the habit I'm trying to break here, but next time I go somewhere I will check the forecast. At least it wasn't as bad of an oversight as my teenager who FORGOT.HIS.CLEATS for the tournament. Thank goodness for the Nike outlet store in Primm, where we stopped and found him cleats for $39. I am in for the remainder of the month though.

I was sorely tempted to buy something yesterday but resisted successfully - whew!  I was at the mall to return 2 dresses I ordered from Talbots (I ordered 3, decided on one to wear to the special event I'm attending - see my prior post :-).  Seeing all this new and pretty spring stuff at the stores made me remember that I never found the perfect shell to wear with my cardigans last fall.  So I started looking but fortunately was able to stop myself fairly quickly.  I went home and looked at my closet and was reminded that I have more than enough stuff to wear!

I'm in on this. I'm doing a Q1 clothing fast which I basically  did last year as well. Ideally would like to make it to June.

I'm in for the full year. So far so good. I haven't even been too tempted and I'm enjoying creating outfits with what I already own.

Well, so far no clothes shopping in the first quarter. These extra few pounds have helped me out. I refuse to go up a size.
