“Too many people spend money they haven’t earned, to buy things they don’t want, to impress people they don’t like.’ – Will Rogers
Welcome to October’s Buy Nothing New Month!
Congratulations on pledging your commitment to LIVING more, shopping less and escaping the consumer treadmill.
You’ve joined the global movement of people from Portugal to Prahran, South Africa to Sandringham, realising we are more than our stuff, that there’s more to life than shopping, that our choices have an impact, and we can make that impact POSITIVE.
Buy Nothing New Month is the joy of more freedom, more happiness, less stuff, less stress.
It is SO simple:
This month, with the exception of essentials like food, hygiene and medicine, all you do, is BUY NOTHING NEW!
You can source whatever you need second hand.
This month, ask ‘Do I really need this?’ ‘can I get it second-hand, borrow it or rent it? Can I borrow from a friend? Can I swap with my neighbour?’
It’s easy. It’s fun. Its good for us, our people, our planet and wallets!
Remember, it’s not buy nothing new ever again…
So beg, borrow, barter or buy second-hand – just buy nothing new.
Your ‘too much stuff’ detox starts here!
Let’s do this!
Your BNNM Crew
