2018 Challenge #1: No Purchases For A Year!

I really enjoy doing monthly and, in this case, yearly challenges to continuously improve myself. The highlight of my multiple 2018 personal challenges will be:

Challenge #1: No buying clothes or ‘stuff’ for a year for myself except personal hygiene and food items. Experiences and travel are allowed and encouraged. Books can only be library borrowed.

I am not a huge purchaser of clothes and stuff, but I have never done something this radical before.  I am excited to see what happens, particularly I want to understand if the feeling of ‘not being able to’  do something actually makes me want it more OR if it will just feel like I don’t really have need or interest to purchase anything for myself anymore.

I will provide quarterly updates and introduce future challenges along with my other progress reports for 2018 financial, life goals and challenges.  Wish me luck!

How about you. Have you ever done similar challenges? What did you learn?
