It’s the one year anniversary since I finished the no retail shopping challenge. Why did I do the challenge? Straight from my original blog post:
I wanted to live differently, meaning finding creative ways to not buy stuff I really don’t need, to share stuff with others, to not be wasteful and to be more environmentally friendly.
So what did this accomplish? Looking at it one year later, it accomplished a lot more than I could have ever imagined. Since I blogged it every day for the entire year, I have a great record of how the year progressed and all of the lessons I learned through the challenge that many called crazy. Let me share a few of the posts with you.
Top 3 blog posts, as chosen by readers:
- toms shoes vs. bobs skechers. for real?! [day 141] (do your own thing and don’t be a copycat)
- a sign of peace [day 363] (lost in the translation)
- that was easy [day 330] (could you live on half of your salary?)
