12 in 11 August Update

Quota Used 10/12

I bought a frock for the ball in October.  More a maxi than a formal frock, but for $6 from the Salvos it's long and floaty and will do.  I need to take it in a bit, but will wait until we return from NZ.

Given the big freeze in NZ a couple of weeks ago, I bit the budgetary bullet and ordered a down jacket from Canada.  I can't get one to fit here, and I've tried.  Less than $200 including postage and I will be warm.

Exempt Items

The silk thermals I bought to wear in NZ come under the heading of underwear so they don't count.

You are so lucky to have found a bargain dress. I never seem to find a nice green anything. Green is not very popular. Being warm is Very Important!!

I'm also at 10/12. This project has certainly made me think much more carefully before I buy anything, but with the rather raggedy state of my summer clothes I'm not sure how much longer I can last!

$6 - bargain!

And about that jacket will last you years and years - much better to buy the right one in the first place than a couple of the wrong ones, even if they are cheaper.
