Buy Nothing Day! November 24 2017

Join us for our 5th annual BUY NOTHING DAY! Instead of Black Friday, make this relax at home Friday. Stay home with your family, be offline and create homemade potpourri, colorful yarn and twig decorations, or learn a song, (all instructions, lyrics, and ideas included here). Or snuggle in and read a story!

Balance the universe with quiet, loving, relationships at home with the people you cherish most on this (traditionally frantic) Friday.

Buy Nothing Day at Waldorf Publications November 27 2015

Here at Waldorf Publications we have established an annual event on the day after Thanksgiving: a day in which we enjoy the warmth of the day-after-Thanksgiving with family and friends.  We invite you to join us and buy nothing. To balance the energy pushed upon us by the commercial world and simply “Buy Nothing” we can all take a day to breathe out and prepare for the coming winter. We invite you to join us in this by being creative if you feel so drawn.
