Today’s Advice: Kick the gadget habit.

Gifts-To-Avoid-This-Season

” Some “innovations” are utterly useless and create complicated machinery meant to perform simple tasks. Do we really need special machines to sort our loose change, a heated bin to warm our bathroom towels, or digital devices (in addition to our computers, TVs, and PDAs) just to give us the weather forecast? Does an able-bodied person even need an electric can-opener?.

Don’t be fooled into replacing functional objects with appliances that require electricity or batteries and may break down quicker-and be harder to fix-than simpler tools.

      Also think twice before purchasing travel-size versions of all your life’s accoutrements. Traveling light is more luxurious anyway. Will the mini ionic air purifier really be that useful? “.

-Abrams, “365 Ways To Save The Earth”, 2008
