A question from hello:

What about computers? When is a laptop really "worn out"?

When it stops working? Hard drive fails? Screen breaks? I think I can “make do” with my current laptop (MacBook Pro, late ‘09) and my iPad 1/wireless keyboard, and iPhone 4S. That seems sufficient!


In 2012, I'm not going to buy anything except what I've used up or worn out. For all else, I'll make do with what I already own or I'll do without. I've come up with some guidelines. Update: for 2013 I'm going to continue along, but not as strictly.


I'm Meg Hourihan. I live in New York City but was raised in Massachusetts. I blame my Yankee-ness for this crazy idea. Read more about me and this project.
