BUY NOTHING DAY

I'm reminded by RevMod that today is Buy Nothing Day.

In high school and my early years at university I used to make a much bigger deal about this day. It seems to me that it has been around for so long that the campaign has lost some of its bite from previous years. Perhaps I'm just getting more conservative in my old age.

I still think its a great idea though, and I think it would be awesome if, for one day, no one bought anything. One of the most influential tools we have these days is our purchasing power. Unfortunately we seem to lack the will or the desire to use that power effectively.
