Is it cheating if I write a post the day before and set it to publish at midnight?

{mosimage}Who cares. I’m doing it.

Anyway. This post is about a particular goal I’ve decided to tackle for this year. Given that we have a growing boy, and plans to take a major trip in a couple years that’s gonna cost a lot of money, and many other reasons (which I’ll get to in a minute), I’ve decided I’m only going to buy the following clothing items new:

  1. Socks
  2. Shoes
  3. Underwear

Everything else I’m going to get from op shops, garage sales, or *gasp* make them myself if I can’t find anything suitable.

I HATE clothes shopping. I have to be in the right kind of mood for it, and then I go nuts. And I hate the kind of styles that are popular now, which, sadly, are the only things in the shops. And it’s really hard to go into a fitting room with a baby in a pram, and even harder if said baby is in a sling. So I’m just not gonna bother anymore unless I have to.

I’ve also decided I’m sick of buying cheap clothes made in China (or Bangladesh, or wherever) that wear out in a month. Plus I’m not exactly comfortable with the fact that buying those clothes supports dodgy businesses who’d prefer to get children in sweatshops to do their dirty work rather than pay adults a decent wage to do it.

Ah, and I’m typing this in the admin section again, so I better copy & paste this somewhere else in case it’s timed me out again….
