Buy Nothing Day. Newspaper article.

"Buy Nothing Day" is organized intentionally as a counter-act to "Black Friday". Originally organized in Vancouver in 1992, Buy Nothing Day is celebrated on Saturday. Occasional discussion has pointed out that, because of the anti-action of the event, it is very easy for people who are avoiding shopping on this day to observe the protest. However, there are also many other people who decide to take a stand and go one step further. 
In this article you can read the story of a woman who, inspired by the Buy-Nothing-Day movement, intends to live 12 months on a very tight budget. As a matter of fact, she is willing to spend money on nothing but bills and food.
