buy nothing day ...
My little bear friend wants to tell you something. Nicola from Four Friends and a Blog lives over in Canada and she says on November 23rd is Buy Nothing Day, I wonder if we mark this event over here? It would be a good idea to pull in the reins and tighten up the purse strings for just one day, or if you just can't quite manage to totally abstain, then maybe grab yourself a bargain from a charity shop instead? My friend up top cost pennies from a carboot sale, he seems to think he is a Peter Fagan 'Colourbox' bear?
Thanks Nicola for the information, she says. 'The reason for this date being chosen is that it's the day after US Thanksgiving and is traditionally the biggest shopping day of the year as everybody rushes out to do their Christmas shopping.'
