Second Hand September

86B2FE62-838C-45FF-8D59-B9FCB53C0FEC in the UK has declared this month “Second Hand September” in order to encourage consumers to think more sustainably by buying used things instead of new.

As a second hand girl by nature, I’m going to try to up the ante by not only buying second hand things but by not buying myself anything at all.

It will be a challenge to be sure. But I hope I can satisfy my cravings for novelty by shopping my closet or by finishing the many DIY projects I have on the go.

Here’s a picture of the last new thing I’ve purchased—a cheap Halloween cape from the Value Village!

Wish me luck!
