Rather than buying more stuff on the internet, how about we celebrate not buying anything this year

I like idea of a buy nothing principal. It’s very good idea. Our collective consumerism creates so much waste and pollution.

I have a rule where I ask myself whether I really need what I’m about to buy and If I feel like I can go without it, then I just don’t buy it. I do this typically with clothes. If I already something in that category that is still in good condition, then I don’t need to buy a new one for now.

We buy used items only these days and we do our best to own everything at least a few years before need to repair/renew them.
