Happy Buy Nothing Day!


Kerri Smith at the Wish Jar Journal has a list of things to do on Buy Nothing Day. Her ideas include writing a letter (insert smile here), donating to something you believe in, writing about the best gifts you ever received, and having a swap-with-friends day.
You can click the appropriately-austere logo for the official site. While you're there, send an e-mail to MTV, which has decided that a burping pig is too controversial for such an elegant station... Just remember -- sock yarn doesn't count.

Sock yarn is like air - one must have it.

Oh darn, I forgot about Buy Nothing Day. Not that I would be caught dead shopping today - I'd rather be boiled in oil.

Does Spyware online count? And I was going to go look for a skein that mysteriously is missing from my stash (seriously, I did not buy just ONE skein of this, did I?) to finish up this hat......

I participated with no idea as well:)! I was totally caught up in NaNoing and ignoring everything else. Which is why you're being peppered with comments today!!
