Buy Nothing Day

Today is Buy Nothing Day.
Buy Nothing Day is a global protest against shopping and spending
In North America, UK, Finland and Sweden, Buy Nothing Day is held the day after US Thanksgiving and Black Friday. In Australia, it’s today Saturday, the 24 November. The 2 rules for the day are really simple. Challenge yourself to switch off from spending for a few hours and don’t spend any money. It’s also a good opportunity to reflect on why we shop and spend so much. The main reasons why we shop and “buy just for the sake of buying” are; we’re never satisfied with what we already have, boredom, loneliness, feeling unprepared, no willpower and FOMO.
Which of those reasons are true for you?
