Don't shop until after election!

Thatís the best form of protest we can give. If we buy only essentials. Donít go to restaurants. Donít shop at Amazon. Donít buy clothes, furniture, TVís. No big ticket items!

If we must buy, buy second hand.

Trump tried to take credit for this boom economy from our President Obama whose policies began this ten year unprecedented economic boom! When Obama hits the campaign trails, make the contrast stark and resolute!

We do not want a Swamp creature for a president!

8. Have been a more conscientious shopper since tRump took office

Have foregone buying a tv, and Iíve passed on several pairs of shoes. Am wearing out old purses/bags. I like thrift store shopping.

I use vinegar, dish soap, and occasionally regular bleach as my primary cleaning agents around the house. Are cheap and Iím not buying as much from chemical companies. Was done with oven cleaner years ago - that shit is toxic awful. I could go on about big chem, but wonít.

Adopted using cloth napkins before he took office, and donít buy nearly as many paper towels. I donít bother folding them, bleh, no - I just shove them in a drawer.

Bought carbon offsets last year for a flight. And, am making efforts to drive less/purchase gas less often.

Itís as much a protest against tRump as it is about conserving in the face of global warming. I still buy stupid stuff, but less than I used to.

So, youíre not alone - is already happening in my household.
