Whether or not, you are a minimalist, we could all do better if we consumed mindfully.
When contemplating whether to purchase an item that you may not really need or that is expensive, take a picture of it or bookmark it if it’s an online store. Wait two days and take a look at the image or bookmark.
Ask yourself the following questions…
- I am buying this on a whim? Is this an emotional purchase?
- Do I really need this item?
- Will I use this item 2 weeks from now?
If you really need the item after a set waiting period. Go ahead and purchase it. Remember, you are in control.
