My plan: a year with no new clothes.

I am going to try to go a year without buying any new clothing, from today, October 5th 2012. This blog is my place to track my progress and be accountable.
The Rule (there’s only one, since this is a pretty simple project):

  • I may not buy any new clothes, including underwear, socks, and shoes, until October 5th, 2013.

Exceptions to The Rule (because it’s not quite that straightforward):

  • I may make clothes for myself – knit things, crochet, sew, etc. This is part of the motivation behind my project. More on that in another post.
  • I may accept clothes as gifts at Christmas, Birthdays, and hand-me-down type gifts.
