We are Calgary-based roommates embarking on a one-year buy nothing adventure.
Geoffrey holds a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Psychology from the University of Calgary. During his undergrad, he explored behavioural modification theories which have informed the basis of this life experiment. Follow him on Twitter, Instagram & Facebook.
Julie is a former hoarder who let go of most of her personal belongings when she moved into a single bedroom room in Geoffrey’s house earlier this year. She was drawn to the idea of a one-year buy nothing life experiment as a way to examine and change her personal consumer habits, learn to let go of “stuff,” create more space and meaning in her life, and of course, save money. So far, she is cycling a lot more, learning to bake, avidly volunteering and enjoying the pace of her daily life and the new projects she has been able to explore. She has a bachelor of Arts in Communications from U of C and a TV Broadcast diploma from NAIT. Follow her on Twitter, Instagram & Facebook.
