Tell us Tuesday is a weekly question and answer feature… I throw out a question on a frugal topic, and you answer! Feel free to leave any links to posts that you’ve written in the topic in your comments.
A few months ago, a friend of mine said something very brave:
I’m thinking of not buying any new clothes in 2010.
Which got me wondering if I could do the same thing?
I’d like to think that I could, but I don’t think it’s possible. I already know for example, that I’m going to need some new tee shirts and a pair of sandals for summer. My kids are going to need a few new things as well, mostly tee shirts and shorts. The good thing is that I know this in advance and so I’m already on the hunt for good deals! I’ve decided instead, to really try and think about what I’m buying, with no more impulse buys!
I’m not too worried about this (unlike other areas of my budget!) as I think I already have a pretty good handle on my wardrobe.
What’s your clothes buying strategy for 2010?
