God, I so wish I could join in on this. Unfortunately, I am a consumer addict.

The good news is that I've discovered the art of selling on eBay, and will soon be dumping post-consumer goods on the world (anyone want a used copy of the 3rd Edition Call of Cthulhu Role Playing Game?).

Of course, our household has also learned the art of buying on eBay, so we won't have too much of a trade imbalance.
