I’m going on a buying ban. I’ve spent a lot of money on things that I don’t need, things that I thought would make me happy but didn’t. Of course it didn’t make me happy, how could it?
Spending money I don’t have, on things I don’t need, to impress people I don’t like. Isn’t that what the marketing companies are all about? Making you feel like if you buy this, or that, you’ll be happy and your life will be better. I’m sick of falling for it. I’m sick of the slight high I get from spending money and the lowest low when I check my bank account. I’m sick of falling for the clever marketing. All these products are not going to make my life any better.
I went through my emails a while ago and unsubscribed from almost all of the mailing lists I was on. The only mailing lists I’m still on are ones that actually care about, which is just The Blurt Foundation and Heather’s the musical (Heather’s is my life) Two mailing lists that aren’t constantlty trying to sell me things. Then I went through my Facebook page and unfollowed a load of pages that clog my feed with adverts about things I don’t care about. My Instagram isn’t too bad because I purge that often enough. I try to follow pages that I enjoy their content not so much pages trying to sell me things. Maybe this is the start of my minimalism journey.
So March is going to be my starting point. Let’s see how this goes…
