My 2010 Challenge....

I admit this is a bit off-topic. But then again, maybe not? Either way, I am going to publicly state my 2010 goal: I am not going to buy any new clothes for myself in 2010. Yikes! There I put it in writing...now it's too real. I have been toying with the idea of doing this "no new clothes challenge" for a couple of months.

Why do it? Well, for several reasons: to save $$$'s; I have enough clothes already; just to see if I can do it! I will use this forum to publicly update my progress so as to hold myself accountable.

We'll see how it goes..... (and you know, if I can also lose some weight, I'll have lots of "new" to me clothes to wear, ha ha)

Thanks for putting up with me....Paula


  1. I wish I could say the same...but since I've had 2 weeks off from work, I've gained so much weight that none of my work clothes fit. Ergg...my goal is to no longer eat fast food. Good luck with yours!

  2. Wishing you lots of luck, Paula! That is a tough one for us girls. ;) I'm cheering for you.

    You can still receive gifts, can't you? (they don't really count!)

  3. Ooo, I'm excited to see how this one goes!!!
