Buying less now - Thanks! How about you?
Hi! I am a frequent lurker and rarely post, but I had to tell you all that you've made my life so much simpler! I am truly organized by nature, but I have just too much stuff. Love to purge, and DH says I live to purge.
DH's birthday is July 4th, and we're entertaining a few people, as usual. I saw (now on sale at Crate and Barrel) cute serving plates that have firecrackers on them. Quite simple, just perfect. I was heading over there at lunch today to pick up 6 of them, and then I stopped midway to my car! I had actually thought:
Do I really need them, even though they are pretty?
Where will I keep them?
Are they worth buying for a once a year event?
I have all of you to thank for the extra $25 in my wallet because I decided I don't need them, I have no where to keep them, and I'd only use them once a year. Then I remembered that my kids would have to dispose of them when we're gone, and I don't want to do that to them because July 4th is such a special day in our lives.
I don't need to waste any more brain power on the cute plates! Thanks!!!
Your turn: Have you ever re-thought a purchase because of something you read on this board?
