I failed, not miserably at all, but I did buy something on 23 Nov 2007. Buy Nothing Day is yet another USA tradition protest or consciousness-raising imported to places were it really means less. First Friday after their Thanksgiving Day. The big day for Macy's and now USA-wide Christmas excess shopping.
My only purchases were (1) three happy hour Timberhog Stout (Picaroon's) @ Wilsers while socializing with Beth and Phil and a few peeps they knew, (2) a slice of "works" pizza @ Luna, (3) a bottle of cheap red @ anbl.
No gift purchases.
No major electronics or entertainment systems.
No shop till I drop.
