Goodbye Mall, Hello Brother!

I <3 a good challenge.  I think this love of challenge comes from being a middle child.  My unfortunate order meant everything was a competition growing up.  I didn't get to do things first, or last, so to make my mark, I had to do them. ....better or at least memorable. Now that I'm an adult, I love challenges because they force me to stir up my competitive spirit in the fight against laziness.  In complete self honesty, I battle laziness every day.  Especially, when it comes to work, cleaning, moving, etc.
Yesterday, the hubs and I went to the mall.  Getting him to the mall with me is a battle in itself. But, I fought hard for mall time, and I won.  I was planning on getting some work clothes for summer.  I ended up finding one dress.  One plain black dress.  Hubby, he did much better, he got two pairs of pants and two shirts.  I was so downtrodden (great word right?).
After much contemplation, I realized, I see clothes that I like but am just so unwilling to pay for them.  I have some pretty expensive taste.  I decided I'm going to challenge myself to make what I wear.  So, for at least a month, I'm not going to buy any new clothes.  I'm going to make what I need to wear either from scratch or from re purposing. This should be fun....
