Buy Nothing Day

Today is international Buy Nothing Day.

This is an interesting idea developed by Kalle Lasn, one of the co-founders of anti-advertising activist group Adbusters.

The aim of the day is to challenge all us consumerist types to try and spend a day without spending.

I love this idea, I really do.

Problem is it's not even 10am and I’ve already been out and bought half a dozen bagels, a bottle of milk and two newspapers.
