In lieu of Living Fly on a Dime’s one year anniversary, I wanted to embark on a major project. Check out the brief video below on Thrifty Threads 365.
Who: Me (Patrice)
What: Thrifty Threads 365, a year long endeavor where I will not purchase any new clothing or accessories. I can only buy second-hand items from thrift stores or flea markets. The only new goods I can purchase are underwear and I can utilize gift cards that have been given to me (via promotional items, presents, etc).
Why: I’ve always enjoyed thrifting but I really want to demonstrate that no matter what your budget is, you can have a fly wardrobe that suits your style. This is also a great way to save money.
When: September 1, 2010 (the official one year anniversary of Living Fly on a Dime) to September 1, 2011.
I know this is a lofty endeavor to take on, but I’m really excited. Thrifty Threads 365 is also open to any readers who want to join me in the challenge. Maybe you don’t want to give up shopping for a year, but maybe just a few months.
What’s the longest you’ve ever gone without shopping? Any tips for my challenge? Interested in joining in on the challenge?
