  1. We're going to have to agree to disagree on this....

    We're going to have to agree to disagree on this. What's wrong with wearing the same dress? I guess it's ultimately up to Catherine. If she loves the dress and wants to wear it again and it's ok...

    You bet. I love fall clothing and am craving something new, but I have enough. More than enough.

    Besides saving money, this challenge is forcing me to think really hard when I have a craving. What...

    I probably wouldn't have if it wasn't for the wedding. One thing that jolted me out of my "I want this new item" stupor were vacation photos a friend posted on Facebook of a place I want to visit. It...

    I would ABSOLUTELY wear it again! You paid a lot for it and looked great in it. It makes no sense economically and for the environment to buy another.

    If you want to wear it again, go for it! And...
  5. Challenges along my "no clothing purchases for a year" challenge

    My nephew’s wedding was in September, and I planned to wear my go to wedding attire – a glittery jacket and tank top with black pants. When I tried on the jacket, it was a little snug and I didn’t...

    An aside on buying second hand clothing. I'm a fan of The Big Bang Theory and love Penny's sweaters and plaid shirts. This past year (before I started my challenge), I found a website called "Worn on...

    I'm glad you brought that up. I had no idea how bad the impact was until I saw the DVD, "True Cost". It made me ill. I've always tried to buy second hand when possible, but I'm also guilty of buying...

    Hi Razz - I gave your reward suggestion some thought but figured clothing is different from food. If we eat today, we still need to eat tomorrow. But the clothing I already own can last for years....

    I realize I'm only into the first month of this challenge, but if it wasn't for YNAB, I might have already caved. There is something about having a snapshot of your finances right in front of you and...
  10. No clothing purchases for a year challenge already paying off

    It's been almost a month into my "no clothing purchases for a year" challenge and I'm already seeing results.

    I really had no idea how mindless my spending had become. I rarely shop in stores,...

    I am just about done with getting rid of everything I no longer use. I'm down to one small pile now. Took years.

    There were some things I was hanging on to because of memories, but the memories...

    Don't give up. I think I tried about 10 different instructors before I found someone helpful. I have flexibility issues and always ended up getting hurt in classes, even with gentle yoga. The problem...

    Oh my goodness, yes. That's why I say I was very, very fortunate. However, within a few short years, premiums skyrocketed. I got into Medicare just in time. Many of those pre-medicare retirees today...

    In the case of the blogger of A Purple Life, she appears to be driven by thoughts of an early death. It's a crapshoot isn't it? I told my financial planner, who was trying to talk me out of retiring...

    I think one of the big issues in early retirement is how to pay for health care. When you're young, this may not be a concern. Before age 45, I rarely saw a doctor. After that, it was one thing after...

    Thanks everyone! Your comments have made me see art in a new way. And I particularly like the comment, "If it speaks to you and evokes pleasure, joy, emotion, whatever, that is not really an...

    Buying art

    I have a hard time buying anything that isn't "usable". However, there is an art show at our local library and I am really drawn to some of the artist's work.

    Our condo is pretty spare and the...

    I sell on eBay for small, easy to ship items like clothing, jewelry or books. I check to see what items are selling for to see if it's worth my while. My china went to a local auction house when we...

    Gardnr - How do you automate your bills with your CC? Do you give them your CC number and trust they'll deduct the correct amount? Some of my bills vary each month; water, electric, gas, etc.

    Tybee - I hesitated to get the new credit card for all the reasons you stated. I'm also a student of Dave Ramsey. And right now, I don't want to pay my bills by credit card because the online bill...
  23. Making more from my cash back credit card than from my savings account

    I finally bit the bullet and got a 2% cash back credit card. It's from my bank and the deal was if I got the credit card I would get around 1.5% on my savings account depending on interest rates.

    Getting off catalog mailing lists

    I'm in the process of getting off catalog mailing lists in my "no new (or used) clothing for one year" challenge. So far, so good. Yes, I've been tempted to look in them, but I haven't seen anything...

    I direct money from each pension check into a special account, but it is not enough. I've set up a budget category in YNAB that I started this month. Clothing money will definitely get redirected...
