This October, we are trying an experiment.

The only packages, purchases, and provisions that will come into our home will be those delivered by our own people-power (i.e. walking, biking, or the like).

That means:

  • No online retailers
  • No meal delivery or meal kits
  • No carloads of groceries or other items

We will only make an exception (this time) for any individual item that we need but is too big to transport on it’s own (e.g. an appliance, large outdoor item, or something like that).

But Why?

Many people have to live like this already, and many more of us will as the financial and ecological cost of delivery rises. We want to see how prepared we are. We also expect we will learn more about our habits. We might find we can forego some things that we currently believe are necessities.
