Pre-New Year's Resolution

I hereby declare that, until the year 2004, I will not spend any more money on STUFF, food and toiletries excluded.

This means:
No new clothes (even undies!)
No new sheets or bedding, no matter how cold it gets. In San Diego.
No new doggie toys (sorry Miles.)
No new media, or renting DVDs, or books or even magazines.
No gratuitous christmas cards: only send them to people you really love or people
with quality gift-giving potential. 37 cents is a lot!
No new jewelry, sex toys, jammies, picture frames, environmental non-profit donations, hand-bags, cute pads of paper, or late fees at the library.

I guess "buy nothing day" has been extended until the end of the year for you?

can I declare 2004 the year I sell off my unwanted possessions? anyone with me on that?

You guys could have a fabulous Duboce Triangle rummage sale.
Maybe it's finally time for you to get rid of that glass whale-dildo.

But I got that in TJ when I was five! How can I live without Moby-Dick-of-Glass in my life?

My junk isn't so fabulous: old electronics equipment, Steven King novels, and out-moded clothes. But I could give out free daquiris to anyone who buys $5 of junk or more. Is that fabulous or schemey?
