My friend Greg emailed me a part of this blog post. I found Carey's leanings insightful and compelling. I hope it sparks conversation and action at your house. Here is a link to his de-brief.
My year long spending fast is over.
For the last year, I’ve been on a 12 month personal spending fast. The rules are here if you want to read them, along with two updates I gave along the way (at 3 months and 8 months). (The 8 month update includes the only case where I broke the rules.)
But basically it meant I agreed to purchase no new technology, music, apps, clothing or other discretionary personal items for a year.
I was inspired to begin it by my assistant Sarah, who had spent the previous year on a personal spending fast. You can read about Sarah’s fast here.
My twelve months came to an end on the weekend.
