Okay, taking a break from my attempts to catch up on our trip and what's going on these days to post a question...or a concept...or something just potentially wacky enough to land us squarely on the other side of sanity. ;)
Jeremy just came to me and posed this idea:
Make the year of 2009 a year of "nothing new." We buy nothing new for a whole year. Exempt are consumables like food and personal hygiene items of course.
This isn't a new idea, we've heard of people doing this. And succeeding. So it's obviously possible.
I'd have to become the master of second-hand stores, which would require me to really work on my patience. That's what I lack that keeps me from utilizing such stores as much as I could, though every now and again I'm in a suitable mood to take advantage.
Hmmm...what do you all think?!
I know it's do-able, it's just quite a plunge. Maybe someone out there reading this has actually done this...do share!!!
Okay, off to clean the kitchen and ponder this possible new quest. ;)
