    Spend what you'd spend on clothing on some good craft beer instead.

    Going cash only forces some discipline. I'm much more focused on what I truly want and much more frugal about finding the best deal.
    Good on you, man. Debt suck and definitely makes you feel that an work done or money earned doesn't actually belong to you. My wife and I only owe on our house, so once grad school is finished we should be able to knock that down while also saving lots of cash for the future.

    I'm actually down for the challenge, except that I just bought a 100% wool JCP suit (good call on the recommendations from everyone here) and may need to have the pants hemmed when they arrive. I have several presentations/networking events/weddings to attend, so it's not really an option for me not to have it fit properly.

    I'm on board.

    Just cleared my BR rewards out this morning on a bunch of BR socks with the cookies enabled 50% off. Got some items that are selling on eBay now but I'm not purchasing anything with that, that's going towards past purchases...mainly my J. Crew mainline fixation these past couple months (damn you and your 30% off sales!)

    How about exercise gear? A pretty good chance I'm going to need to replace my running shoes in the next month or two.

    Although I can't say I always agree with @Duvel's taste in beer (too many IPAs for me, but that's pretty representative of the US as a whole and the Midwest more specifically), the man has his priorities straight here.

    FWIW, I also like Belgians, particularly dubbels, tripels, and saisons. I just can't drink them all the time the way I can an IPA or a DIPA.

    That would be my definition of "too many IPAs"; I agree with your taste in Belgians.

    Anyway, @zcm, have you been itching to try out any new activities or hobbies? This could provide a great opportunity to do so.

    If you have to pay $10 to have the pants hemmed for work, I don't think that would be an issue.

    If it's actually for running and not for fashion, I personally wouldn't care. Just be honest with yourselves since there's no way for anyone to verify anything. As long as you think it's a justifiable (to your own conscience) expense and not for fashion in any way shape or form.

    Any other takers? I'll update it until late tonight/early tomorrow morning for anyone else that wants to give it a shot.

    I'm in! Today is my wife's last day at her current job so money will be real tight real fast. I got some big purchases out of my system in the past couple of weeks. I'm good to go, starting immediately.

    I am in. I have two suits being tailored that I am picking up tomorrow and I'm obligated to pay for, but I'm in there moving forward. Let's do this!
