    So here we are, another trip around Sol, it's time for No Buy July. The idea here is to pledge to suspend any purchases for the month and enjoy what you've already got. That's the rule; spend nothing, use what you have. Of course, freebies and gifts don't count, you didn't spend any money.

    This is a terrific opportunity to revisit blades you may have disliked in the past, use a soap that's been forgotten in the back of the cabinet, or to dust off that razor you haven't used in months.

    I tend to find a lot of items to either PIF or auction off during NBJ and I also find some long lost favorites.
    This is also an appropriate time to spend a little sumthin sumthin on the TSD forum by way of a donation. After all, you're saving a boatload of money in July, right?

    So, Who's in?

    I'm long as me purchasing TSD Barbershop soap for my cousin, then him paying me back won't count against me? It won't be for me and I won't order anything for myself. He asked me a couple of weeks ago about making a new order for him.

      I am the center of this universe
      The wind of time is blowing through me
      And it's all moving relative to me
      It's all a figment of my mind
      In a world that I've designed
      I'm charged with cosmic energy
      Has the world gone mad or is it me?
      I am the creator of this universe
      And all that it was meant to be
      So that we might learn to see
      This foolishness that lives in us
      And stupidity that we must suss
      How to banish from our minds
      If you call this living, I must be blind

    as of July 1 until Aug 1, no shave related purchases, I'm the master of my own domain, Lord willing.
    (unless darkbulb has a yard sale, if that happens I'm on a the next transcontinental flight)

    Yeah, if @Darkbulb starts selling off some of his stuff, it might go from no buy July to sell stuff around the house to buy in July. (Had to tag him, because I can't see him opening this thread...)
