Taking minimalism to the extreme, buy nothing in 2012

I just thought about something i think i’ll try to stick with. I’m not really one for new year’s resolutions but I’m going to try my best not to buy anything in 2012. Obviously if there are bills for hosting, petrol for the car or maybe a tire that needs to be replaced i’ll do it. This also excludes things that I need for health sake, like pills or toothbrushes. Basically I’m going to try not to buy anything at all as much as possible.

Is this even possible? My wife busy the food so that also excludes that and might make it a bit unfair for others that might want to do the same but the project is with common sense, you have to eat obviously.

The main thing is not to buy gadgets, software, junk i dont need, camping gear etc. If i want something i’m going to have to make it myself.

Is this possible?
