No New Clothes: May Update
Another month has gone by, to make it over 6 months since I went on a clothes shopping ban. Let’s see what happened this month…
I didn’t purchase any new clothing, but I did receive 5 shirts as a part of registering for 5 running/triathlon races. Two were from local 5k races, one from a triathlon, and 2 tank tops from virtual 4 and 6-mile running races. Whew! I didn’t realize how much I spent this past month towards races, but they were all donations to charity for the runs, except for the triathlon (which I did not complete, bummer).
It’s a good thing I’ll be on a tidying binge this summer as my running shirt drawer has overflown. Some of the shirts have been getting better, with a mixed cotton for softness and better sweat wicking. Some shirts are the old school stiff cotton, of which I might end up donating anyway.
No one else bought clothing in my house, except I purchased 2 uniform shirts for Monkey for the fall. Last summer, I went to tons of stores in search of his school colors to find nothing left on the shelves. This year, I picked up two a little early because they were available. As we tidy up and clear out, I’ll have a better gauge of what will fit him in the fall and what we’ll need to pickup (if anything) for his school clothes next year.
