No-Buy 365

What is No-Buy 365? 

On November 8, 2017, I vowed to not make any unnecessary purchases for a full year. This means spending money only on food, bills, or covering any unexpected costs. The objective is to not partake in those expenses that I enjoy and still be satisfied.


  • Food and Drink
  • Bills
  • Medical emergencies
  • Repairs
  • Receiving something for free

Not Allowed

  • Books
  • Clothes
  • Entertainment (Concerts, Stand Up, etc.)
  • Giving money to, or asking, someone else to make a purchase on my behalf

Why Am I Doing This? 

I am doing this as an experiment to find out how my time is spent when it is not spent shopping.
