IMO the most important rule is: don't buy something you won't need just because it's on sale just because someone else has it. It is preferable to own fewer possessions than to dispose of them every year.
Welcome, Joshua. You're right. I haven't bought much of anything this past year. There was no need and everything I have I've tried to eliminate as I went along. I know people who buy just because it is discounted or a great deal. It's almost like hoarding.
I have jeans, shirts, and blouses. I also have dresses for special occasions. My rule is, every time I do some shopping I always make sure the I donate some of my clothes that I have not worn for a year.
