The final purchase?

Time is running out for buying things in 2011. On Tuesday evening I head to Idaho for nearly two weeks in the woods, backcountry skiing and camping. I don’t anticipate much shopping during that time. None actually. Four days to go. I haven’t been thinking about it too much, and nothing I really need has come to mind, so I’m foolishly going to say I’m all set and ready for 2012. The real question is: how long before I realize what I should have bought when I had the chance!


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.
