Nothing New September

(Wouldn't it sound way cooler if it was "Nothing New November"! While I love the alliteration, I'm impatient. I don't want to wait another 2 months to start my experiment.)

Drum roll please..........

* I will buy nothing new for the month of September! *

Ta da.

Well, I guess it didn't actually need a drum roll. Now that I think about it, it's not really an announcement, so much as a possibility. But, let's give it a go anyway, shall we?

The premise is simple: I will buy nothing new [other than food, meds, toilet paper, you know, the basics] for the month of September. Can it be done!? Meh. We'll see how it goes.

It's already the 4th, and I've a birthday party today for 3 celebrants to attend. Luckily, I've a small stash from which to choose their gifties.

The real challenge will come in the next few weeks (obviously) since the kids are in school and may or may not require various addenda to their backpacks and at least 3 more birthdays - one of them is my father!

Then there's the movie I'll probably be going to with the book club girls, but surely that won't count, right? Come to think of it, since I'm in charge, outings will not count. As long as I'm not bringing anything home with me.

Let the games begin!
