Right. So just a few days into y Buy Nothing New year, and I automatically said to Mac, “yeah, we could use some more blank DVDs” when he asked me if I wanted anything from in town. Despite the fact that he still had 4 sitting next to me. . . . that’s something like 18 GB worth of space! And I thought I neded more? It didn’t even click that it would be ME buying something if he “picked it up”. He wasn’t about to find it on the ground, or get a ripened pack off of a tree. I didn’t realise until he called back a little later to ask how many that I realised it was buying something new. Duh.
Maybe this is going to be harder han I thought. I thought my previous challenge had made me so much ore aware about my buying habits and how quickly we decie we “need” new things. Obviously not.
I need to work on thinking more.
*****clarification: Mac did NOT buy the DVDs, so I did not lose. . . but purely by a fluke. It was a good thing that he called me about them so I could say something*****
