The Year(s) They Stopped Shopping

When Sierra interviewed John Perry, a founding member of the Compact, he and his friends were about halfway through their yearlong agreement not to buy anything new. As that anniversary approached, other publications checked in on the progress of their pledge. Almost another year later, Good magazine reports, many of the Compacters are still going strong. To celebrate their continuing commitment, we've gone back and added additional interviews with other Compacters to our original coverage. Check it out and let us know, what would be the hardest thing for you to stop buying?
