@jawad zakariya: True restraint lies in resisiting the power to buy when you have the ability to do so. Having read your comment on the Zune and Mac , I suggest you participate fully by getting some money: Sell your iPod!

Buy Nothing Day - I think I've been participating since last week. I think I can stretch it to the end of the month, if I dont starve myself to death.

Thanks for the post Zak. :)

Resisting the temptations to buying things is not something to be observed for a day (or two) and be forgotten for the rest of the year, but it's a whole new perspective to living altogether.
The urge to buying things: That's something which we must learn to fight against... at all times!!

So effectively, while I think it's nice to celebrate the "Buy-Nothing Day(s)" every year,
but it's so much better if we try to have "every" day, as a "Try To Buy Nothing Day"! :))


Here's a nice link - that can help us fight the buying urge better:
