    Best possible use of clothing money IMHO.

    Still haven't spent a penny, but I'm planning on getting those flip flops when I get around to it.

    Finally broke down and pick up two new pair of Dockers Alphas during the most recent sale. I wear the couple pair I already own pretty consistently, and ended up getting the two pair for <$30 shipped.

    Back to spending no money again...

    Well boys, I know I didn't quite make it (one pair of jeans I couldn't pass up and I love them), but I am very proud of myself as that was the only purchase I made! Congrats to those of you who made it.

    I understand that. We just got hit with an $1800 medical bill, $1200 clutch replacement and pay for grad-school (thankfully my company is helping a lot on the last one). So much for moving forward with cash savings and this is why I'm considering a ~$200 2nd suit as opposed to trying anything fancy.

    Also...anyone interested in a Vectra 1800 weight machine?
    I know all about this. The week we were at Disney, the truck was in the shop to the tune of $3800.

    FYI, I believe those gift cards can also be used at Sierra Trading Post.
    This is good to know.

    Yup, nice work guys! I definitely fell off the wagon, then disassembled the wagon, then burned the pieces (that is, I bought a bunch of stuff after I bailed). That said, it was a good exercise and I think my spending was lower and smarter than usual during the last 90 days.

    I had to get my iPad replaced at the apple store today and there is a HUGE sale going on at original penguin. The had "the earl" polos for $20. I'll definitely be going back in there this weekend.

    I personally don't care about the 1 day at this point. You 3 get credit for going this long without making any purchases. It must have been tough to resist all those temptations.

    I can't speak for anyone else, but as far as I'm concerned, I'm glad I decided to participate in this challenge. It definitely helped me see how much unnecessary stuff I was buying and how I don't 'need' to buy something just because it's on sale.

    I was just counting 90 days. No matter. I can go another.

    I never counted out the days, but I thought someone said early on that it ended on the 4th.
