Buy Nothing Day
from http://urbanfox.blogspot.com/



This Saturday 27 November (or Friday 26 November if you're in the USA) is Buy Nothing Day.

The official website says:

"For 24 hours, millions of people around the world do not participate -- in the doomsday economy, the marketing mind-games, and the frantic consumer-binge that's become our culture. We pause. We make a small choice not to shop. We shrink our footprint and gain some calm. Together we say to Exxon, Nike, Coke and the rest: enough is enough. And we help build this movement to rethink our unsustainable course."

Rancette,

The funny thing is, every "day ofter Thanksgiving" is Buy Nothing Day for me. I can't deal with the pigs at the trough atmosphere. I used to be a Chirstmas Eve shopper, until "Downtowns" died.

Here's a great gift catalog, I'm gonna splurge on a goat this year-

I totally understand!! I am not a "Shopper". It took me awhile to figure out that the day after Thanksgiving was the big sale day. And I was trying to figure out if I would have gone shopping that day anyway. I just made sure I have enough gas & groceries, so I don't think I'll be buying anything.
