buy nothing new for a year challenge: 1 week update

It has been a week since I started my Buy Nothing New for a Year Project. I have managed to make this point without any stumbles.

The only items of purchase this week are food and petrol.

But who am I kidding I always knew that the first week would be the easiest week. A fresh challenge with sack loads of motivation. The hard part is yet to come!

    Wish you the best!
