If you're in Bradford, you can go down to Forster's Exchange and make cards and stuff without buying things. Sounds like a decent antidote to the psychedelic cancer that suffocates us at this time.
At some point in the ride, you might find yourself in Osaka with Spanish speakers where you had expected Edinburgh talking Greek. This does not mean you are lost, or even off route.

I have a list of larger purchases I'm on the lookout for over the next X months (a powertap hub, a new tent, a replacement commuter bike - that sized stuff). If I manage to get it for cheap in various sales (e.g. Black Friday, Boxing Day, etc) then all the better, but I don't go out looking for things that aren't already on my list.

Any money I've save gets donated to charity, so it's a roundabout way of making large corporations donate to charity (I benefit by getting some extra gift aid tax relief too).

I was going to say I hadn't bought anything, then I realised I'd had an email to tell me my Sainsbury's Delivery Pass auto-renewed today.
I see that as a utility really.

I have successfully bought nothing (other than food and drink). I do require a new eyebrow trimmer, however, after the last one inexplicably ceased to work. But I'll somehow hold out until later in the week.
