… another assessment of my progress 😉
As you may remember, last summer a colleague and friend of mine and me decided to try not to shop.
My last assessment covered September and October, I believe… 😉 But how did my resolution go afterwards?
In November, I did not buy anything. No clothes, no shoes, no bags, no jackets, … 🙂
In December, I bought one decorative candle holder for myself. I did not need it, I know that. I had not broken another one. I daily walked past it in the shop’s window on my way to school for at least two weeks before I went it and bought it for myself. (and one for one of my closest friends) I just love it 🙂 It is white with a fox on it and cost 14,90 €.
Considering this is the Christmas season, I bought presents…. however, they are not for me and this year I purchased few and mostly consumable ones, like chocolate or something to drink or herbs for cooking. I must say, this Christmas season has been a truly relaxed one. 🙂 For some friends and colleagues, I created handmade Christmas cards… just because 🙂
January has only just begun, and so far I have bought a bag to transport my yoga mat on my bike- never had one, so this is a first buy and useful. Cost 25 €, organic cotton (or so it says on the lotuscrafts website).
I am curious to see how well I do 2023…. 🙂 However, my wallet and I agree that this resolution is awesome.
It frees me to know I have everything I need.
