Quote of the Day - Men and women approaching retirement age should be recycled for public service work, and their companies should foot the bill. We can no longer afford to scrap-pile people. - Mahatma Gandhi

Just How Material Are You? Can You Do Without For A Year?

What New Year's Resolutions are you making?  Losing weight, promising to be nicer, cutting the cord of the TV, reading more books? 

Try this one on for size:  buying nothing new for a year.  A group of 10 San Franciscans tried it, and some liked it so well that they've signed up for another year.  One of MIPTC's favorite AP writers, Lisa Leff covered the phenomenon in this article.  It's an interesting take on  materialism.
