For those of you who were actually reading my blog (were there any of you?) my freegan fast ended not with a bang, but a whimper. Seriously. I learned a lot from the experiment, but started shopping...about a week before Easter. Ahem. There's such a vast difference between WANTS and NEEDS and the two of them can be confused in so many ways... I started shopping at grocery stores, then it grew to clothing and then other unnecessary items. I can say I had a good excuse, since I had to deal with some pretty serious medical issues (which I won't disclose) right before Easter.
So. This was a fantastic learning experiment, but it didn't end as well as I would have liked. More reflecting to come at a later time.
