Buy Nothing Day | 2017
>> Want to see our Top Picks for this week instead?
San Francisco Bay Area |
Buy Nothing Day is the antithesis to Black Friday: your special day to unshop, unspend and unwind. Relax and do nothing for the economy and for yourself, at least for a single day.
Can you really buy absolutely nothing for just one day?
You might say “Sure,” but can you actually go one whole day without transacting any business? Are you totally debt free? Do you have any utilities? Do you have a cell phone? Do you have stocks? Do you have other debts, such as credit cards that accrue interest? Can you really go one whole day without buying anything? Try it.
The organizers say this not to push you to attempt the impossible or go to extremes. They just want everyone to think about how integrated these transactions are into our daily routines.
