I was reading through my favorite blogs, and found that Andrea over at A Peek Inside the Fishbowl has come up with a fantastic idea. Unshopping. It seems as though this time of year is so plagued with consumerism and shopping frenzy that people just buy stuff that they don't want or need, solely because it's on sale.
Consume, consume, consume seems to be all that we Western countries do. To be honest, it feels like shopping is all that Christmas has turned into. Anyway, Andrea has come up with a challenge: don't buy anything except household necessities until February 1st.
I plan to take her up on that challenge. It may be a little easier here where I live considering that there's no big box stores and few places to shop anyway, but nevertheless.....I am going to stick to the no spending rule. Think you can do it too? Go visit her blog here to get details!
