Resolution: Shop Drop Challenge 2016

I have joined the Shop Drop Challenge 2016 hosted by, text from her blog as follows:

Mommy Greenest Shop Drop Challenge

"Need a New Year’s Resolution? Sign up for Shop Drop 2016! Take the Shop Drop Challenge and pledge not to buy any new clothes for 30 days, choosing like-new consignment, thrifted and swapped fashion instead. Shop Drop 2016 begins January 1st!

Why? To break the fast fashion cycle. The average American woman spends $60 on clothes and trashes six pounds of textile waste each month. If the 160 million women in America took our 30-day shop-and-drop pause, we could save nearly one billion pounds of landfill waste. Yes, that’s billion with a b.

Right now we have 213 people signed up, and our goal is 1,000… representing 6,000 pounds of landfill waste saved. Thanks to presenting sponsor, everyone who takes the Shop Drop Challenge is entered to win a $250 like-new consignment shopping spree and invited to our VIP party in Los Angeles. Sign up now!"

I have been doing something like this since the middle of this year. I have either made stuff or used ebay. Strangely this has resulted in a wardrobe of clothes I like better than the ones I used to buy!

This looks like an interesting challenge and a great idea. Good luck.
