Dan Harper expresses some of the same ambivolence I feel about Buy Nothing Day, which is today. For the sake of full disclosure, I bought two rolls of toilet paper (recycled fibers) and a pack of callus pads today, neither of which is the epitome of conspicuous consumption.
If you only defer your buying habits, rather than change them, what good have you done?
I'm cutting back on my spending this year, Christmas included, and cutting back on my debt in the process. What about you? What ways have your adopted (or hope to adopt) to make Christmas more meaningful? Or, if no less expensive, how about less stressful?
