Buy Nothing New month
Today marks the final day of Self Stitched September. I’ll do my usual weekly recap, and then some thoughts on the challenge overall, this weekend. In the mean time, check this out!
I discovered Recycled Fashion during this month in the flickr group. Erica, upcycler extraordinaire, mentioned this hip happening in Australia during the month of October. I’ve done Buy Nothing Day for years, and coming off of SSS, I’m feeling up for a bigger challenge. Actually, it should be ridiculously easy. I rarely shop for clothing as it is. I have shelves of books that need reading. Birthday gifts are best when handmade. However, despite my stash-bustin’, I do still pick up new fabric from time to time. Let’s see if I can break that for a month straight. I think I can :)
Want to join in?! Here are a few resources (local, US & international) that we already utilize at home. Holler if you know of more:
I especially love the quotes by Bill Bryson, Will Rogers and Vivienne Westwood on the homepage.
