Yes and No.
Yes, because the answer to 90% of your questions such as “should I buy this?” is “No”.
There, done. *dusts hands off*
No, because you have to really be on top of what you own; you don’t want to be buying another juicer when you have one hidden away somewhere at home!
And, there are times you REALLY REALLY want something but:
- know deep down that you don’t need it
- cannot get rid of anything you already own as its substitute to justify buying it
- have to still try to keep your 3-suitcase rule for your life in mind
- and the price is not in your comfort range (Hello? Sony? Can I review & keep your Sony PRS600 reader for free please?)
It was more difficult when I first started, because I didn’t develop the right habits immediately.
That took another 2 years or so, before I started adjusting to the lifestyle and really scrutinizing my purchases without having to consciously think about it each time.
Now, it’s quicker to make a decision, and I have a stronger resolve to resist temptations for the most part.
