This is why I will buy no new clothes for a year
Jenn told me I need to be stricter with my rules when I told her about the jewellery-making kit I bought.
"That counts," she said.
"I'm not sure," I said
"You need to be stricter," she said.
So, here are the rules.
1. From this day henceforth I will buy no new clothes for 365 days. This includes charity shops as they will be new to me.
2. I can accept hand-me-downs from friends and family but if I do I must make a charitable donation.
3. I can buy new underwear if needed to replace old stuff.
4. I can buy hosiery.
5. Now I have my jewellery making kit I can make jewellery with found objects but not new beads etc.
Is that OK Jenn?
If you are feeling sorry for me. Don't. Here's why I don't need any new clothes. The evidence of my clean-up yetsterday!
