...to the day my 6month shopping challenge was over. I did this project in the first half of 2014 because things were weighing me down.
Often to think clear, you must clear your mind - it's time to change.
So, I tried not to shop for 6months. Instead of satisfying short, immediate cravings, I tried to choose sustainability and longevity. Found ways to repair my clothing, to trade with friends and spend several weekends at flea markets selling and giving away.
RESULT? It's a lifelong practice, learning, failing, but doing the best you can. Extended for an unlimited time. You don't need much to live a rich, healthy and happy life.
