I decided a few months back that 2010 would be a 'buy-nothing-new year' for me. This was based on something my friend Trina did for 2009, and she got the idea from an article; at least I think that's how it went. This is my first blog (ever), so I'll try to find a link for that article, and before 2010 begins, I will also come up with a set of conditions for this year of not buying anything new.
It seems to fit well with a number of goals I've been chipping away at like: decluttering, being more environmentally friendly, not being sucked into lazy consumerism, being grateful for what I have, and generally being better with my money. I also have a fantasy about it making me more creative, crafty and handy with making things.
So, stay tuned and wish me luck. I'll be needing it. Any suggestions are appreciated!
And lo, such a thing exists
