So in my New Year's To-Do-List I mentioned cleaning out and buying less. Today I have been doing a deep clean of my house. I started making a list of the new cleaning items that I needed to re-stock on. While making the list It hit me that I have an "extra" basket under my sink and that I should look there before I start buying more.
Have you ever thought about how wasteful we are???
I bet I have hundreds of dollars in my "extra" basket and I never even remember that it is there. I always just go buy what I need. Well today I am starting to check off the BUY LESS part of my to-do-list. I am leaving all of my "extra" stuff on the counter where I can see it. Yes it makes it a little more cluttered but I am determined to use it up before I start buying more.
I am so mad at myself because I think man I could have so much more money in my pocket. I understand buying more than one when you can get a good buy. I can promise you that probably never happened with any of these items because they are all different brands.
Clorox Wipes are some of my favorite cleaning items. Every time I think I am getting low I go and buy more. Well I have 2 full bottles and I am going to use them up!
I'm all about smelling good while sweating but really 3 extras????
You know I did not buy these together one is the "real" thing and one is the Wal-Mart brand. Both almost full simply because I have 2 other Febreeze cans sitting right next to them.
I encourage you to look around your house for the "extras". It blew my mind when I really started looking. There are so many people in this world that NEED the basic items. I have so many "extra" items that are WANTS. I am determined to change this and only have what I NEED. Hopefully with the savings I will be able to touch the life of someone who is in need.
