My year of not shopping

Part of my motivation to start The New Professional was that I recently signed up for the Great American Apparel Diet, a pledge taken by women all over the U.S. (and some internationally) to not purchase clothing for the next year. The founders started their pledge September 1, 2009, but you can join at any time and diet along with them through August 31, 2010. Since I started March 1, I'm aiming to carry my pledge through to February 28, 2011.

There is just one rule to TGAAD: no purchasing clothes. That means no new shirts, pants, jackets, skirts, dresses, workout clothes, work clothes, casual clothes. Shoes, accessories, and underwear are where you can make up for it, but it looks like many participants are giving that up,too.

The best part of TGAAD is that you aren't in it alone. Not only are there dozens of women out there sharing your pledge, each participant can post on the website blog.

Check out my first and second posts as a TGAAD-er.
