Alright alright alright, we are getting close to the new year....who is in for No-Buy 2018? Barring a last minute temptation getting the better of me, I have completed NB '17 and I want to keep it going one more year. I feel good that I have gotten my habit under control and I have enjoyed being 'The Finisher" this year, and if I go one more year I should have my stocks relatively under control. For ground-rules, I think we can all agree on "no new hardware". For consumables, I wanted to consult with you on this one. I would propose something like "we can only buy consumables if we are out of a particular *category* of product". That is to say, if we are about to run out of blades, we can buy a new 100-pack, or if we are about to run out of soap/cream/AS we can buy a new soap or cream to replace. But, if we run out of a particular brand or type of soap/cream/AS/etc, but still have something left in the category we can use, that's a No-Buy. So, two questions... who else is in? And, do you have any suggested amendments to the above ground-rules? Happy No-Buy '18!
