January is the start of the consumption cycle

It is Friday and Fridays are for fun. Over the last few years, I have been getting rid of excess stuff. I made so much progress in 2017 that there isn’t much left to get rid of in 2018. I am going to try something new this year. I am going to see if I can make it through the year without buying anything.

I’ll have to buy food and other consumables and soap, toothpaste and a few other things. I’ll also need to make purchases for my business.

That might seem like a lot to buy but compared with all of the stuff I could buy it is almost nothing. If I truly need something that isn’t on my consumables or edibles list I’ll bet I can buy it used or even trade with someone and get rid of something I don’t want and exchange it for something I do want.

A few days after Christmas I found this display at Target. The yoga mats and the fancy fruity water were on the same shelves that were filled with cookies and sweets before Christmas. First, they help us fatten up and then they sell us stuff that can be used to slim down.

Can I make it through an entire year without buying anything? Can I make it through January? We shall see.
