I’ve decided to track the items entering and leaving my home during Buy Nothing Year.
I’ll include the more ‘permanent’ items that are allowed and not allowed in the rules. I won’t include things that are solely hubby’s decision, consumables or rubbish. I’ll only include outgoing items once I’ve actually rehomed them – placing them in my decluttering box is not enough.
If I do the Buy Nothing Year challenge well, I should end up with a very short list of incoming not-allowed things, and an outgoing list that is at least three times as long (but hopefully much, much longer).
In: toy stegosaurus $0
In: plastic ice cream container to use as food scrap bin for worm farm $0
In: chest freezer (pet purchase and furniture) $?
In: elephant keychain (planned gift) $0
In: 2x children’s books (planned gift but then didn’t attend party) $10.90
Out: 2x pairs tights
Out: book ‘The Woman Who Fell From the Sky’ – Jennifer Steil
