The Resolution: Buy Nothing

Well, here we are. I fell off the map again. Typical for me to do as I am out here in the desert practicing retirement. I am just catching too many waves and having too much fun to be able to be very productive, but I know that I must.

“Commitment is doing the thing you said you were going to do long after the mood you said it in has left you.” -Darren Hardy

For me, that means two things right now. Writing. And The Resolution.

So how is it that people stick to the things they say they’re going to? What tricks can we use to make sure we can do this? It sounds tough, actually, no? Well, one think is continuing to seek inspiration.

Well, here is a story that has helped keep me inspired on the former of my two focuses, The Resolution.

There’s just one thing I would like to know in the end: does shopping for food in Canada end up costing one more than $12,000/year?  I also wonder if the lady is aware of the idea of ‘dumpster diving’.  That is, seeking out food discarded by grocery stores and restaurants that is, by all intents and purposes, still good.  A friend of mine said his roommate was doing this for a while and was quite successful.

What do you all think?  Am I being silly to spend as much as $12,000 this year?  Maybe I could do even less?  I think I will reach out to this lady and see how her year goes, and what I can learn from her experience.  Maybe she’ll do me a guest post even?

Tune in soon for details on how my spending is going this month, the first of The Resolution.
