That's right, today is Buy Nothing Day. I must admit I'd forgotten all about it. Then again, I wasn't planning on buying anything today anyway - and I am certainly not going anywhere near a mall this weekend.
Yesterday was Buy Nothing Day for me too. And maybe even Wednesday - no, wait, Wednesday morning I stopped at the coffee shop to get a coffee and cinnamon bun to go, but that was the extent of my expenses that day.
Anyway, it's not really so much about not buying a single thing in 24 hours as it is about thinking about how much you buy regularly, and in particular, how many things you buy that you really don't need or even want. And how much money you are wasting by doing that, money you could be saving or investing instead.
Have a happy Buy Nothing Day!
