Buy Nothing Day

Intellectual Properties reminded me that Friday is Buy Nothing Day. It is traditionally, the biggest shopping day of the year in the final run up to Christmas, that holiest of celebrations marked by the giving of gifts purchased with debt. Oh holy night.

We will avoid the nightmare rush and will only buy something if its an emergency, i.e. diapers, formula or bananas.
