buy nothing day. day one-hundred-six.

Good Morning! If you are reading this you likely are not out there being a "good little consumer" and buying absurd Chinese made things at ridiculous prices so, GOOD FOR YOU! Because today is the day I dread the most in this country. The day where people in this country literally kill in order to buy crap. It makes me really sad/mad and is quite opposite the point of this blog! There are so many other things that you could do for the day after Thanksgiving other than consume crap. Here are some ideas: 

Hang out with family or friends
Rent a movie and make popcorn
Volunteer your time helping people less fortunate than you (or animals!)
Read a book
Visit a museum or art institute 
Clean out your closet
Take a walk
Start a blog
Enjoy some quiet time 



So try something different this year (or if you are reading this late then next year i guess) and don't buy a thing. Its crazy I know but guess what the stuff will still be here and will likely go on sale again and do you think Grandma really needs that big screen TV? Just try it i think you will enjoy taking some time to slow down your life. Have a happy Friday!
