Since trying to simplify life I have tried to buy less crap. It hasn’t always worked out the way I want but I have gotten better. MOST of the time the crap I buy is crap I can actually use. Cute and functional. But sometimes I see stuff that will have no real use other than something shiny for me to look at, break during a road trip, and keep dust free on a gravel drive (wish me luck on that last one.).
The great thing about online shopping is that I can wishlist it or add it to my Amazon and then if I STILL want it, I will remember where it was. That was the issue with meat life shopping. I’d see something I would like, walk away to ponder it – go back and never see it again.
You have to understand 2 things about me and my life to really appreciate this. 1) I have buyers remorse before I get to the check out – I often talk myself out of small to large purchases. It drives LK crazy. 2) I have VERY limited space now and if I am going to buy something it has to function within that space.
I am still a sticker slut and a pen whore — I love quirky t-shirts and I don’t think I will ever walk by cute stuffed animals without at least a passing glance but I think I am getting better at this RV lifestyle.
