Welcome to Buy Nothing New Month!
It’s that time again.
This year, welcome to the Dutchies who have launched BNNM locally, and our mates in the USA who are gearing up to launch BNNM in the States.
We were wrapped last year to have people pledging from all over the globe, from Spain, Portugal, South Africa…
We hope you have a blast, that you make mates with neighbours (a lot can happen when you knock on the door and ask to borrow a drill…) that you look at your existing stuff differently and that you get out there and spend time with your mates and family instead spending money on stuff you don’t really need.
Of course, Buy Nothing New Month, doesn’t mean buy nothing or buy nothing new ever again.
Just ask yourself first, do I really, really need it? Can I borrow, rent, swap or buy it second hand?
Let us know your challenges, post on the Facebook (Buy Nothing New Month Australia, and Buy Nothing New Month 2011 – yes, thanks Facebook for not answering our requests to merge the pages!) we want to hear how it’s going.
Also, if you pledged last year, and don’t want to hear from us this year, shout out and we’ll take you off our list.
