Reduce your Purchasing

Save tons of money…

I’m going to share Jenn’s pre-purchasing steps:

When the product is in your hand, ask yourself first:

  1. Is this product going to add value to my life and do I really need it?
  2. Will my money be better spent elsewhere?
  3. Where is this product going to be in a years’ time? Landfill…or can it be repurposed?
  4. What’s it made from, where is it made (it is healthy, non-toxic, biodegradable, fair-trade or sweatshop?)

Instructions

Write down step 1-4 and keep in wallet.
Take out list when product in hand is about to be bought.
Just try for step 1. If it’s easy, try step two and so on.
Challenge yourself when you’re feeling frisky.
