I was just thinking I had nothing to blog about today, when I came upon this group listed on boingboing...
They are calling themselves "Compact" and in a nutshell have vowed to not buy anything new in the year 2006. Wow. I am all for decreasing our need/want/addiction to buying "stuff" but I don't know if I could make it for an entire year.
Here's a link to a news article about them in SFGATE
and here's their blog:
I found it interesting too that they are referring to "freecycle". I joined my local freecycle group about 6 months ago.

That's quite a radical idea. While it sounds like fun I'm sure I could stick to it for all of 1 month... I like the concept though.
