Only 1 New Clothing Purchase in 4 Months

The year is almost over and about 4 months ago I decided not to purchase any new clothes for myself for the rest of 2016.

I am proud to say I have made it!

There were plenty of times where I was tempted to purchase things, but my view on consumerism has really changed. Do I need something or do I just want it? I completely opted out of The King of Consumerism that is Black Friday and actively avoided browsing online.levis-jeans

When I did need to get a pair of jeans for work, I bought them from Goodwill.

Unfortunately, I did end up buying one piece of clothing, a pair of fleece leggings. If you live in Chicago (which has been colder than Mars the past couple days), you would understand this purchase.

2017 might be the year I don’t buy any new clothes. Stay tuned!

  1. Way to go! I pretty much only buy secondhand for me and the kids as well. I say pretty much because I do buy some things new, such as undershirts, bras, underwear, onesies, etc. So, basically undergarments. Oh, and socks. 🙂 But yeah, why buy new jeans for $25 when you can usually find just as great a used pair for under $10? And you’re helping put an old pair back into “circulation”? Win, win! ^_^
