This is news?!!?

Think of it as dry January for clothes addicts. Oxfam hopes that the campaign, now in its second year, will establish itself on the calendar in the same way. In normal times, September is the month when summer dresses are packed away, and the trend cycle reboots – hence those hefty September issues of the glossy magazines, full of new-look wishlists. Second Hand September takes this principle of the wardrobe reset and reframes it, challenging consumers to find new looks with old clothes instead. Last year 62,000 people, including Vivienne Westwood, Rachel Weisz and Paloma Faith all signed up.

Jobs in capitalist societies require consistent expenditure by consumers to create jobs and growing consumer expenditure for job growth.

It is arguable that the Japanese economy hit the wall and splattered because the living spaces Japanese have do not allow the massive accumulation of consumer goods. Japan's GDP was accelerating in the 1980s, and then it slowed from the 1990s onwards.

My sister bought me a beaut thick coat, hardly worn at all, $1 at an op shop. Will come in handy when living in Tassie for sure! Mum bought me a beaut pan, very thick copper bottom. I have never burned a single jam or preserve in this pan. A good size too, 8L. Mum got it from an op shop. unused, $4.00.

Be making marmalade in it tomorrow and a couple more times in the next few weeks.
