Alright, so I was recently perusing through some blogs and came across this link: http://www.buynothingnew.com.au/home/
October is apparently ‘Buy Nothing New Month” in Australia and has recently began to pick up popularity in the Netherlands (My people! I’m Dutch) and the U.S.A. (I guess they’re my people too, but the Dutch are pretty cool thought right? ;) )It got me thinking how this would be a GREAT challenge for me on a multitude of reasons. 1.) being that I’m actually kinda broke this month, (I just had to get the iPhone 5) 2.) this would be an excellent opportunity to really re-examine what I already have in my closet and come up with some new and creative ways to wear my wardrobe, and 3.) it’s just a good challenge to see what we as consumers really need. I know I can be frivolous at times and fall pray to America’s consumption for more, more, more. I’ve decided that I’ll follow the rules and only buy what I need; the necessities. This will be a great challenge! What outfits will I come up with???
Suggestion: Why don’t you join me in this effort? What could it hurt?
Below you will find a little description of the challenge:
