November 23 is Buy Nothing Day!

About the Author

Imagine if Canadians were known for being all over their money. Engaged. Proactive. Getting out of debt. Savvy. Saving. Generous. Nancy wants to help. Nancy started her own journey with money over 15 years ago, and formed her company “Your Money by Design” in 2004 to help others along the same path. It’s not the usual financial advising/investment stuff. It’s about taking control of day-to-day finances –managing monthly cashflow effectively, spending appropriately, getting out of debt, saving. If you're ready to take control over your finances, pop by her business site, YourMoneybyDesign.com


  1. Hey Nancy,
    That’s an amusing video..

    I’m confused now!! 🙂
    What what happen if people didn’t over charge their credit cards and didn’t buy unnecessary things ? Has it ever happened.

    What happened if people were content for just one day and didn’t feel the urge to go out and buy something?!!

    I’m going to have to think on this awhile!!
    Don’t forget about the Canadian Tour of Personal Finance Blogs on Tuesday November 27th.
    I changed the date from Sunday as I thought everybody would be watching the Grey Cup.

    Please let all your readers know about the tour.

  2. I was just watching the madness in the US on the news. Sigh…. it is depressing sometimes. I managed to buy nothing so far today. Yay!

  3. @monty loree – I know! I know! It’s a very baffling thing, not buying stuff 🙂 and tx for the reminded. I’ll get my act together on that tomorrow am.

    @wooly woman. yeah, it’s depressing, but if you haven’t clicked on the buy nothing link above, it’s worth 10 minutes. It’s so counter-cultural and wonderful.
