Today I am 42 years and 6 months old and I am making a very public commitment to not buy anything non-essential for the next 6 months.
As I unpacked the boxes (yes, 4 boxes) of Christmas decorations today, I realised it was yet another example of an area in my life where I have way too many things. The list could go on - bags, shoes, boots, books, ornaments and mugs (and I don't even drink hot drinks!)
To match my desire to consume less and to save money, I decided to make this commitment and to set myself a 6 month goal. Maybe I will continue after that but a clear goal to my birthday will keep my focused.
What do I consider to be on the essential list?
In addition, I am going to try and either sell things I don't need or give them to charity. I am going to look at all areas of my life and see how I can consume less - from plastic bags to using my car less.
