"To bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair." Isaiah 61:3

One Down....Eleven to Go....

Well, I made it through month one of buying no new clothes for myself! Not one single thing!

But why is it when you restrict something, you then notice it everywhere! Temptation lurks in the most unsuspecting of places....Did you know there are clothes everywhere--even at your local gas station! (albeit not the most fashionable pieces) but nonetheless clothing... :)

Oh well, I will continue on my self-imposed challenge to not buy anything new. But it is oh, so hard!

On to month two.... :)

  2. Good job!!! I'm glad you are keeping it in chunks by months instead of weeks or days, short goals are always better! :) Keep it up, I'm pulling for you!

  3. Good job!! If you are feeling like you'd like to buy some clothes... your sister in TX could use some new items! :-) They wouldn't be for YOU..... and you'd get to shop!
