NOT Buying It: My Year Without Shopping

by Judith Levine - £7.99  Pocket Books (2007)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781416526834 | ISBN 10: 1416526838

"Judith Levine was filled with the spirit of rebellion during a particularly gruesome bout of Christmas shopping. Having maxed out her credit cards and been barged, trodden in and glowered at by her fellow panic-buyers, she experienced a sudden vision of heaven: life without shopping...
 
Levine's reasonableness only makes her case more convincing. She succeeds in making frugality seem like fun. Instead of turning into a joyless frump, she becomes demonstrably happier, more resourceful and closer to her partner.
 
Capitalism, she concludes, "gives us everything except what is free" - and that's the stuff we need most."
