Today is Buy Nothing Day

I admit it, I am a recovering shopaholic. This year, I spent less and purged more and I now realize that I have been in the grips of a lifelong obsession to buy things to make me feel better, more young and beautiful or more cool. I don't usually get into anything political but Buy Nothing Day really caught my attention. Buy Nothing Day is a day of shunning big chain stores and corporations that drive consumerism. Buy Nothing Day focuses on spending time in nature instead of spending money at the mall or online. 

Instead of battling the crowds at the shopping centers, I will be making a few handmade gifts and then if the weather is warm I will take a hike and enjoy the wealth that nature provides.

November 25 is Buy Nothing Day and I will honor it by enjoying what I already have.
