But then I thought: "Meh. I don't really buy that much."
That is until I thought about the Vacation Couch, the Scooter Clock, my new scarf, purse, and a ton of books for the Kindle and wondered if that were really true.
I thought about the money I spend on soy lattes, bubble tea and other luxuries. Which left me wondering:
Could I actually do a spending fast?
There are places it would absolutely break down for me:
1) Socks, underwear, shoes and t-shirts. (which really should probably go without saying).
2) Any appliance.
3) Scooter-related safety gear.
4) Books (which I prefer to buy new so the author gets some money).
Then, what does that leave? Could I truly not buy anything new for a year? Could I live a life of repair, replace and repurpose all in keeping with a theme of restoration?
And what would that look like?
These are new thoughts for me. Still percolating in my head. But you can be sure if I figure it out, I will blog it.
