The list.

I might do a buy-nothing til 2009 starting with my birthday next month. That's not much of a commitment, but considering it encompasses the holidays and I love giving gifts to people, it's pretty serious. Just throwing it out there.

  2. I'll be tuned in as well. I'm interested in the criteria - you're definitely still buying groceries (I hope) - so will that include stuff like shampoo and moisturizer? And if is there a special clause for replacing something (aka a toaster) if it breaks? And also is the point of the experiment just to stick it to capitalism for a short while? Or is it minimalist living?ph

  3. Hi y'all. Dori, I'm not really sure how it will look yet. Groceries yes, basic supplies yes, anything else no, not really. If there's something I really think I want or need I'll write it down and see if I still want it after the first of the year. I may make an exception for thrift store goodies. It will just be an experiment in simplifying life a bit, making do with what I have or doing without it. I hope it will make me do more art projects.

  4. My love of gift-giving - especially random any-old-time gift-giving - would probably make this the hardest part for me as well.

  6. I'm sorry--it's gone, gone, gone. I'm sure I'll start another one up soon enough, and I'll spread the word when I do.
