I subscribe the the Unclutter blog and there was a post about The Great American Apparel Diet and 6 Items or Less.
It sounds intriguing to not buy any "new" apparel. I'm thinking that undergarments don't count because when you need them, you need them.
The 6 Items or less in a month seems extreme until you see that, "There are exceptions that don’t count towards the six: undergarments, swim wear, work-out clothes, work uniforms, outer jackets (rain slicker, outdoor jacket), shoes and accessories. You can get multiples of the same item for laundry purposes, but different colors count as separate items. Or you can tell us to stuff it and make your own rules."
My start date - August 1, 2010. No "new" apparel purchased until August 1, 2011....
