Well, my first intuition was to go on a no-buying pledge -which I did eight months in the past. And that didn’t work out very effectively. I did, actually, make some purchases just a few months in. I by no means purchased anything from chain stores/fast style manufacturers, though, which was my most basic aim, and I do not think I will buy there again. I actually have no interest in that and searching thrift shops/vintage stores is rather more exciting for me.
