Save the world/Buy less things!

Have I talked about this already I can't remember. But it has been impressed on me again how much useless 'stuff' we acquire. It really isn't stuff its JUNK and I don't need it so why do I buy it?

This is a new way I can 'save the world.' By not buying things that I don't need those things aren't needing to be manufactured or transported. Its true that one person not buying extra stuff might not have a impact on the manufacturing world but what if you joined me, and told a few friends?

Also I want to clarify I will be buying some things not necessary to life but I will try to get them at second hand stores and garage sales there is more thrill that way anyway. *Wink*

An interesting turn of events.

My husband passed away on Monday Dec 10th after a 3 1/2 year long battle with cancer.

This of course leads to a lot of thoughts but as far as this blog is concerned it will help.

I will admit that Mark was a huge encourager when it came to 'not adding clutter to my life" in other words he discouraged me from buying anything. However he wasn't all for some of my crazier ideas, especially if it meant changing anything to whole wheat or whole grains. So this presents and interesting opportunity for me...
