What's the last thing you bought?

I propose a Red Friday instead : a day where no one buys anything. At all. See how the consumerist construct bends under the weight of a little common sense.

A how to knit bracelets kit from the Yorkshire Countrywomens Association (a bit like the WI) for the outrageously lovely and cheap sum of £1.50.

I definitely won't be buying anything at all today though as I am skint.

I will be doing boring essentials shopping today - but as I've been lurgied for the past week and not shopping at all, I reckon I'm in anti-consumerism credit at the moment!
