If you have debt, and most people do, how does it make you feel to know that you owe so much money to credit card companies, the federal government, friends, family, schools, and banks?
Take a break, today, from the consumerist struggle and buy nothing.
Yes, that may seem like a shock to you but by buying nothing you are empowering yourself to say, "No."
Think about it.

Now I've got something else to say.
I've been trying to find out when exactly my contract expires, so I can cancel my service.
But I haven't been able to talk to a customer service representative. I've been trying for about a week now. I've called a few times, I've even tried their chat function.
But after waiting for thirty minutes I decided to try my luck on the phone again.
I've got to be careful when on the phone with them. I once attempted to make a payment using their automated system but ended up talking to a live person and so T Mobile charged my account $5 for making the payment that way.
More than likely they'll charge me some fee for having to mail me my bill since they'll deactivate my.tmobile web access.
Update: I waited, and waited, and 58 minutes later I saw got these messages. Damn.
This seems to happen to me much too often and it really bothers me when it does. Keys, wallets, documents, tools, etc. You name it, I've lost it. And in many cases, I've found it again.
Today I'm going to tell you how to find that which you've lost.
It all starts with 12 Principles.
1. Don't look for it
2. It's Not Lost - You Are
3. Remember the Three C's
4. It's Where It's Supposed To Be
5. Domestic Drift
6. You're Looking Right At It
7. The Camouflage Effect
8. Think Back
9. Look Once, Look Well
10. The Eureka Zone
11. Tail Thyself
12. It Wasn't You
My favorite aspect of this fool proof methodical method to find your lost treasures is to prepare a cup of tea, and just sit down for a bit. Try it. It works.
