I could probably buy less new things. I don't mind thrift stores too much or buying off craigslist at all. It does take more time to find things that you like or are worth buying though

I think I can somehow handle one year, granted that my computers work fine and don't break before the year's over :) But 5 years would be a stretch!

"I came up with a list of personal exceptions of stuff I was allowed to buy new. Like underwear, toothbrushes, bras, socks and of course, consumables and personal care items. (No used tampons for me!)"

Interesting read... I could save a lot of money but it would definitely take a lot of time to pull off. Plus I am not a used person... I'd rather buy new at used prices.
