Buy Nothing Day: No purchase necessary!
I have been following this rule since I hears about it years ago on another website - We now (it's just the husband and I and the fur kids) just spend time together.

Buy Nothing Day: No purchase necessary!
November 21st, 2009 10:31 pm ET.


Christmas products being stocked on store shelves earlier and earlier every year? If you are someone who avoids Black Friday like the plague, this special "holiday" may be right up your alley!

Buy Nothing Day was founded by Canadian artist and activist Ted Dave back in 1992 in an effort to raise awareness about over-consumption and consumerism. Today, the event is celebrated all over the world. In North America, Buy Nothing Day falls on the same day as Black Friday, which is November 27th, 2009. In Europe and other countries, the day is recognized on November 28th.

So go ahead - take a break from buying during the annual 24-hour moratorium. And while you're at it, why not cut down on all sorts of over-consumption this year too? Turn off the lights and unplug the appliances you aren't using.
Some of you people have WEIRD conversations with your imaginary friends.

Well, for me, every day is buy nothing day! [Although, that might change if I ever have money to spend after bills are paid...]

Most of my comments are designed to make people think deeply. Others are simply me trying to have some of fun when I need not be serious.

I met Ted Dave in 1994 in Vancouver, when this was a new movement. It's a great action, and I support it fully.

I also support "Beyond Petroleum Day", which is a one-day boycott on oil/gas on Feb 19th.
