the pledge


Ok, I've finally taken the pledge.

Wanna pledge too?

I know most of you out there are 100% committed to doing this but maybe there are a few who need a little push to make a couple more changes...

I am doing the no buying new clothes challenge...except for undies heheheh

Little Ted Canvas said...

I'm doing it too & it's been great so far! I'm really enjoying everything handmade & thrifting for secondhand is just such a buzz. Yay for you!

Selina said...

Eeek! I thought pledging to not buy new clothes for 4 months was hard enough! Good luck!

Tracey said...

I have taken up Tiff's challenge - though I am only a few weeks into it. So far so good!

Tania said...

Just tell me how I deal with gifts for birthdaying teenage boys and I'm in. Although re-reading the pledge - do gifts to tricky nephews count???

Maybe next year, this year i'm working in Shop Handmade which is craft, design, style & handmade mecca, so i'm supporting Australian made small business while my retail satisfaction is put to good use. Love Posie

I think when I have a little more free time, I would love to do this. So cool that you are signing up!

rebecca said...

Yay! I've signed up not to buy any clothes that come from a sweat shop at another blog, and I've found that formalising it in my mind has really helped! No impulse buying those little things that I don't really need. This concept looks even more intense and exciting! Good luck!

Good luck!! I practically already do this. The only clothing items I've gotten new were a few items months ago, on clearance at Target and $2-3 each. Other than that, it's thrift stores and hand-made for me!

interesting, and a great concept. am just thinking about little boys and their new undies and socks. . . that would be tricky. and when i need something clothes wise, i seem to need it straight away! the hunt for 2nd hand can take a while.
love to know how you go with it :)

I am just too pathetically weak to even consider this... HOWEVER, I have made a pledge to buy quality over quantity in regards to clothes, so no cheap stuff frm cheap shops- you know the ones...

Yeah I'm sure there will be a few hurdles for me too but I will do my absolute best. Fortunately being a shopaholic in a previous life means I have heaps of clothes in the wardrobe to fall back on.

It sounds quite tempting, not sure if I could stick to it 100% Good Luck!

Kate said...

Good luck! You are very brave and very wonderful. I'm not there yet but maybe working towards it one day.
