Buy Nothing Day 2014

Nov 26, 2014 by

Black Friday? Who cares. The one day (well, now it’s more like ten days) of the year I would never go near any retail establishment is Black Friday. Yep, as usual I’ll instead be observing Buy Nothing Day. From the organizational website:

The journey toward a sane sustainable future begins with a single step. It could all start with a personal challenge, such as this: make a vow to yourself to participate in Buy Nothing Day this year. This November 28th, go cold turkey on consumption for 24 hours … see what happens … you just might have an unexpected, emancipatory epiphany!

Buy Nothing Day is legendary for instigating this type of personal transformation … as you suddenly remember what real living is all about … you sense an upsurge of radical empowerment and feel a strange magic creeping back into your life.

Join millions of us in over 60 countries on November 28/29 and see what it feels like. Then, after Buy Nothing Day, take the next step … for generations, Christmas has been hijacked by commercial forces … this year, let’s take it back.

Why not give it a try this year and see if you “feel a strange magic creeping back into your life”? Or if you do venture out into the madding crowds this holiday weekend, remember the Money Counselor shopping creed:

BUYING STUFF YOU DON’T NEED ON SALE DOES NOT SAVE MONEY!

happy thanksgiving

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
