Debt Free Valentine's Educational Rally

I did not see much traffic today. There were a couple times were it was just me and the street. But at least it wasn't cold. I did receive one honk and one wave. That was motivating.

 

It was interesting looking at the faces of those who drove by. I could tell from people's expressions of those that believed buying things meant love and could not understand what the poster meant and those who wished they received more hugs.

 

I especially liked seeing the little kids discovering my presence. According to the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood, I am confident I am one of the very few times in their childhood that they received an anti-consumerism message.

 

Well, hopefully, I was able to plant a seed for people to really take a critical look at their spending and figure out if they are buying stuff because marketers sold them on the idea or if they really needed the product or service.

 

Have a Happy Debt Free Valentine's!
