This post is a sequel to last week’s, where I talked about the list of things I wanted to buy at a certain point in time.
Sometimes I do buy them after the waiting period is over.
In the case of the want list, I’ve bought two things.
Thing one is an app for my favourite tarot cards. I love the cards so much that I decided to buy the app. It is so good!
The second thing I bought is a book that ha been on my list the longest. I found it really cheap secondhand and decided to get it.
The new thing I did with these items is that I add whether or not I regret buying them.
As of today, I don’t. Both serve me well. I know, however, that there WILL come a time where I will regret a purchase.
It might be an impulse buy, or something I thought I could use but didn’t. It may even be one of the things I don’t regret buying today.
Whatever it is, I have promised myself that I will be honest about the things I’ve bought, and that I will keep checking back on the list every once in a while.
I know that it will teach me a lot about what I truly need, what brings me joy and what I really shouldn’t buy again and why.
It is all part of the journey to becoming a conscious consumer. And I for one am ready to dive deeper into learning to be just that.
