Replying to: odd @odd

@odd @jamesvandyne I like the business hours idea, and have been attempting to apply this to @TIL. I dislike the idea that my purchase is guided by some sort of mass messaging; rather, I find myself to be in a much healthier state when I take control of my purchasing;

  • decide it's time to buy something when I can afford it;
  • check to see if there is a deal;
  • buy it either way if it's necessary.

This takes a lot of work, a commitment to focus, and awareness of the quiet ways in which the social order is constantly attempting to have an influence on your actions. But it is worth the effort.
