Thursday is a big day for ads in the daily newspaper here in Winnipeg. I took the time to look through and actually reflect on how I felt. I wanted to see if I had the desire to purchase anything that I may or may not need. We did our weekly shopping on Wednesday at the local “No Frills” outlet. I had no need to look at the ads in the paper that were for grocery stores. I did go through the weekly best buy add. Other than a few deals on USB stick, I didn’t see the need to purchase anything at all. I Passed the test.

Everything purchased was placed into re-usable cloth bags (we’ve been doing this for years).
