    Not that I'm in any way the judge of whether anyone is "doing the challenge right", but that sounds totally reasonable.

    Yup. Still good. I'm also extremely busy so it is helping out.

    I have made a few small purchases, so I have not stayed 100% true to the letter of this. I have greatly curtailed my spending, so the spirit is still going strong

    Does it count if you buy a pair of shoes as a present for someone else?

    Also, those BB McAllisters that I bought and just arrived on saturday...returning those. Something about the poron sole doesn't work and they fit very different than my standard AE strands/PA.

    Hopefully that means I'm back on the wagon...

    I made it through January and I'm two days away from making it through February. It has made me appreciate what I have AND I don't spend as much time browsing S&M, eBay, SS, etc. when I should be working!

    And to think that I have THIS thread that inspired me to make the change!

    Clothing wise I have been pretty good. No frivolous purchases despite the AE sale and trying to temp myself in to purchasing a new pair of shoes/boots.

    Mind I did end up purchasing some camera gear/equipment that is helping me out for a school project. And of course some running/gym gear. But to my mind, I needed all of those items
