Things I Will Not Buy Anymore

I was moved when I watched a concept of minimalism in Japan on Youtube . I realized that space is one of big issues in my house. So, in order to not make it worse, I will not buy some stuffs in the future anymore. Instead of buying these things, I want to save more money or invest more to buy a house or vacation.

Stationery 

I am crazy about highlighters and everything that colorful. Although not buying these stuffs will not significantly save my money, but at least I can save a little money for foods, for instance, or for giving to others. I bought a lot of highlighters, pens, papers, notebooks for one irrational reason: they looked really cute. For example, I bought this hard-to-define-color highlighter because the color is really rare for highlighter.

Clothes

When I scrolled in Instagram, there are so many updated fashion, clothes, veils, and everything. Thanks God, I’m not a kind of person who easily follow current fashion. But.. I currently bought a cloth and a veil (I actually regretted this, but I can’t stand when people said, “Let me buy for you!”). This clothes was for my engagement, so I thought this is an exception.

Glasses

I can’t believe I wear the same glasses for almost four years! This is a breakthrough for me. I actually bought a glasses about a year ago. But the glasses is not comfortable to wear. So I used my old glasses until now.

Make Up/Skin Care

I am not a kind of person who consistently take care of my skin. But when something bad happen to my face (especially acne and fine wrinkles), I am over reactive. I bought expensive stuff, like this one (CC cream. I know it’s expensive but the result is really good) or this one (eye cream. Does not reduce fine wrinkles around my eyes).

I sometimes bought several type of masks: brightening, whitening, peeling, acne removing… whatever… Some of them doesn’t work, so I will not buy them anymore.

Books

I can’t say I read books. But, I like buying books. After evaluating how many books I bought and how many I actually read, I maybe need to rethink when I buy a book or I need to change my behavior towards books. Will I really read this book?

Is that all?

No! My house is full of pillows, carpets, blankets, bed sheets, plates, forks and spoons, and bicycles (that was Dad’s). Quantity of those stuffs is more that number of people in my house!
