Buy Nothing Day Saturday 27th November

Ask yourself these simple questions:

Do I need it?
How many do I already have?
How much will I use it?
How long will it last?
Could I borrow it from a friend or family member?
Am I able to clean and/or maintain it myself?
Will I be able to repair it?
Am I willing to?
Have I researched it to get the best quality for the best price?
How will I dispose of it when I’m done using it?
Are the resources that went into it renewable or nonrenewable?
Is it made from recycled materials, and is it recyclable?

Enjoy No Spend day! Spread the word! Here’s the link to the website 

It’s a month away but I’m promoting it every day on my Facebook page as my friends and family need something to think about. A lot of them will get back of their ‘cheap’ holiday this half term. I would like some people I know to have one Saturday off ‘going to town’. Stay out of the Mall at Cribbs Causeway… know who you are!

Stay at home, bake cakes, visit friends in the homes, make something…….just have one day when you don’t go near a shop, coffee house or ‘bought entertainment’.

How are you going to spread the word about Buy Nothing Day?

  1. We don't have a lot of “spend days”. It is a nuisance to go out of our way to go to the shops on the way home from work and it would have to be a special trip to go on a Saturday. Shopping is not my favourite activity so I don't think I have a problem. However, I'm behind the concept of a NSD for those who do think shopping is recreation.


  2. erm , oops, I've bought something today, a sewing magazine but it was only 99p from ebay (full price in the shops is £2.99) and it is supporting the cats protection charity.

  3. I had my spending spree for the month: £115 on a months tesco supplies, £6 on baskets (reduced to 50p each in the local florist, which I'm going to paint to use at the Christmas fair or for pressies), and £4.50 in the charity shop on a long-sleeved t shirt and a gorgeous chunky knit hoody for me to keep the chill out with no/little heating!!
    Keep up the good work Froogs xxx
