No New Clothes Challenge Month 2

Realised I haven't reported on my getting past another month.

Still no new clothes have entered the house, actually I've got even less as I ebayed some. I find ebaying very satisfying as it seems like free money but it does take an age to photograph, upload and write descriptions. I will do some more soon as I like the idea that not only will I not be spending any money I might end up in profit for the year.

My cohort in  this challenge, the lovely Janey, said something great on Friday night. She simply said "It's quite liberating isn't it?" and she's right it
is. I'm not too sure why, I guess it's because I can wear the same old thing again and again and don't have to worry or maybe it's because, like the other night, I had to rethink what I would normally wear. I ended very pleased with my outfit - recycled clothes I've not worn for months just worn in a different way. I even got compliments :-)

Janey and I don't see each other very often for a chat, more often a quick hello in passing or a wave as I go past her so it was a good chance the other night to discuss the rules. Apparently I can't buy any new shoes either .... but knickers and swimwear are OK. 
We still love the reactions we get from people when we say what we are doing. It is mostly a horrified "I couldn't do that" and the men saying "I do that every year".


  1. very impressed that you are ebaying too, no-one would buy my old stuff.... I haven't bought anything this year either, although I am in dire need of a new white tshirt, and I'm very relieved new underwear is ok!

  2. I am eagerly awaiting the results of your sewing ... Lovely to see you this morning - let's do it again soon!

  3. You clearly have great willpower!
