The power of a pledge

The funny thing is, I never said to myself “Yes, I’ll do that. I pledge not to buy new clothes for the next year.”

But something strange happened. Every time I even thought about buying something new, besides the usual guilt, I also thought “You’ll just have to reset your twelve months again, is it really worth it?

I reckon it was about August last year that I started thinking about a year without clothes.

So how am I doing so far?
