    Very commendable. Good luck, everyone. I will be watching this thread with great interest...

    ...all the while, making a few choice sartorial purchases.

      Add me to the list Vicious! Picked up a couple of things this month and told my wife I was going to hold off for a couple of months. Might as well make it 90 days since we are all committed together. Good luck everyone!

        [MENTION=4193]sabrown[/MENTION], you just might be ready to be "committed" after 90 days of this. But good luck.

                I may be a few minutes late, but count me in, too. There aren't any real holes in my wardrobe right now. This should help the unnecessary spending and buying just because I could use something on sale.

                  I learned from a former marine friend of mine that there isn't such a thing as a few minutes late. He told me to be at his house at 8 am if I wanted a ride. I showed up at 8:02 and he had already rolled out. Lesson learned.

                    This isn't that friendly 60 day thread. This is a much more roided out version so expect to be fully ridiculed by your peers when you fail. Good luck to all the combatants . . . I mean contestants.

                        Wasn't sure if you were kidding til I saw your final list. Seems like an arbitrary life experience to share to justify excluding someone on a forum about clothes and accessories.This isn't the US Marine Corps and I'm pretty sure you're not his sergeant.

                        Then again, I'm not yours so feel free to ignore the peanut gallery. Just seemed odd.

                          That was an example of 'being a few minutes late'. I was 2 minutes late and got left behind. He was an hour late and got left off a stupid challenge list. Sorry if you didn't enjoy the anecdote.

                          The reason I don't do 'a few minutes late' when there is a deadline is because inevitably there will be someone who will post today and say 'I missed it by a day, can I get in'. Or later this week, someone will post 'can they still join in'? At what point do you say no? I make it easy on myself and don't get accused of playing favorites.

                          Anyone is free to participate along and post how they are doing but I will only be keeping track of those who made the cutoff time.

                            Here's another story that you won't enjoy but I'll share anyways since it gives you an idea of my mindset.

                            When I was in college, one of my jobs was working as a bank teller. I'd work evening drive thru and there were days where you were just slammed (pay days, 1st of the month, right before a holiday weekend). Lines would be backed up in to the street if any of those 2 days fell on the same day. We closed at 7pm but there'd still be a long line. If I didn't cut it off at some point, I'd be there until 8-9pm because people would just keep joining in line.

                            I'd see what the last car was at the end of the line at 7pm and that would be the last customer I'd help. As soon as I was done with that car I'd roll down the blinds. The next car would come up complaining that they were in line and how important it was that they got their transaction done today. I'd tell them that they were not in line by 7pm and if I take them I have to take everyone behind them because I'm going to hear the same story from everyone else.

                            This challenge is for fun so there's nothing at stake and nothing serious about it but I am always serious about a deadline.

                              I told my wife there's 11 of us trying the challenge. She said none of us will make it.

                                Extra motivation! My wife doesn't think I'll make it either. Going to prove her wrong this time!
