With only 15 more days of the project (I can't believe it!), I'm noticing that the over-frequent use of certain clothing and apparel has taken it's toll on the items.
After my latest wash of laundry, I pulled out my trusty t-shirt from gymnastics camp of 1996. Sure, it's been with me for almost two decades, and I knew about the giant arm pit hole, but I've now noticed holes developing in between the words screen printed on the shirt back, and dotting the hems. Yikes. Maybe it will just fall off one day. I hope not! Brian might not mind, though.
Anywho, one of my two bras is now MIA. In all my moving transitions, it's probably lost in the shuffle. I hope I didn't accidentally throw it away!
Additionally, both my ebay-purchased shoes are currently unwearable due to faulty sole glue! And half my earrings lost their backings. At least I have enough clothing and shoes that none of this is potentially deterring to finishing the Made in USA project!
I also found a nice Mead brand Made in USA note book in Target for my new job tomorrow! Yay! (I almost bought a Made in Taiwan notebook, but caught myself).
Hello! I'm a 30 year old gal with a liking for doing year long projects. I've done a year without any form of chocolate, a year without coffee shops, and 5 years without gum (and I LOVE chocolate, coffee shops, and gum)! A year wearing only American Made should be the hardest yet, though*.
