Melanie Rimmer over at Bean Sprouts (whose return to the blogosphere has been warmly received) has reminded me of Buy Nothing Day this Saturday (28 November). I say reminded, because it's not the first time I've read about it. However, on that occasion I tried, and succeeded in forgeting about it.
The truth is that I'm am not at all sure that I can manage it - not properly anyhow. The campaign not only advocates buying nothing for 24 hours, but also turning off lights and non essential electrical appliances - a complete shut down. I am to park my car (the only easy bit, as I don't have one!), switch off my phone and log off my computer. Aargh!
However, never daunted by a challenge, I am going to give it my best shot.
Atleast I'll have an excuse not to do the ironing!
