Buy Nothing Day
This year I will be participating in both the Advent Conspiracy and Buy Nothing Day.
I will be giving out presents; but they will be handmade and homemade and something of use. That doesn't mean it can't look good or taste good or smell good or be beautiful or not be meaningful -- it just means that I don't have to spend MONEY on them. I will choose to use my time to create them.
I could spend more time blogging about this, but I don't know what more can be said. Perhaps I will compile a compelling list later. I am tired of the commercialism of life; much less the commercialism of something I hold precious - the birth of Christ. How about you?
