More on the Great Purge  
I am hereby making a vow.
I shall buy nothing- NOTHING- for the next 6 months.
And I'm not talking about food and necessity- I'm talking about all the crap that you don't need. Clothing is ok so long as I use it. Books are always welcome- knowledge is invaluable.
Everything else, however, is not even an option.
I want to try and live my life without baggage. Like the emotional kind, I want to put that in physicality as well.
I produce my mind through art and carvings. Things that can go BACK to nature after it's life has passed. I don't want plastic things that will outlive me and kill every other thing on this planet.
I don't want to contribute to the giant hoards floating in the Atlantic. I don't want to be on of 7 BILLION of a stupid species that needs to fill it's space with empty stupid things in order to think it is important. I want to be like every other creature ASIDES from the human species. I want to be something that perpetuates nature and the natural order. I want to know that my most valuable goods are the ones that I carry in my head. The Languages, the Oral Traditions, the Martial Arts, the European Sword Fighting, how to plant plants, to ruminate about old scripture and the written words, and all the little secrets the stories have to tell us.

I did keep some of the old things. Some of the things that remind me of pinicle moments of my life. Asides from them, I do not want to ADD anything to my "collections".
For the next 6 months, I live like the things I hold most dear: I live in Balance and Harmony with Myself.
Lets see if this works.

Good for you! I'm also starting to live like this! I only buy what I need (I spend most of my money on FOOD!!!) not what I want. I try not to buy what I want too much. Buying too much material stuffs are just a waste of space and money. Also, those stuff will eventually be donated anyways. XD

We should love and take care of our dear Mother Nature and Mother Earth. <3

I kept things of strong sentimental value.. but fundamentally, I don't have the yearning to BUY things. I was in the Toy Isle the other day and found that I wasn't urge dot buy a single thing.
Well, asides from 2 carving knives, but those are more art supplies then actual toys. Although, they are MY toys.... XD
