church of stop shopping

As a result of my new  spending hiatus, I have been reading about not shopping and found this article about groups of people whose spending hiatuses are permanent, from the Amish to Freegans to No Impact Man.  
While I am pretty sure I will be back to shopping for pretty things after the spending hiatus is over it's still interesting, inspiring and pretty overwhelming to think about how others live, and live well, without it.

I know! It's a conundrum.

I read this other article about a guy who only bought stuff made by someone he'd met, which is a lot more interesting, and fun, but I can't find it right now.
