Paring back on your purchases and possessions

The month of October is a time for paring back your possessions, rethinking your buying habits, and moving stuff on! Get inspired by attending "How Did We Stuff It Up?" (The Loom Room in Williamstown on 8 Oct) and watch the movie trio - The Story of Stuff, The Story of Change and The Story of Solutions - followed by a panel discussion and Q&A as we look at what is going on with all our Stuff!

Join the challenge of Buy Nothing New Month, where you take the month of October to really think about whether you need something, or whether you can borrow, rent or get it second hand. You can sign up to Streetbank to share things with your neighbours, bring along your clothing to swap at Swap 'til you Drop (Williamstown Library on 22 Oct), and sell or buy second-hand goods during the nationwide Garage Sale Trail (25 Oct). Want to explore becoming a minimalist? Then book ahead for free tickets to The Minimalists 'Everything that Remains' world tour, touching down in Melbourne on 12 November.
