How to buy less stuff (by buying more)
“Out of clutter, find Simplicity. From discord, find Harmony. In the middle of difficulty lies Opportunity.” – Albert Einstein
Reasons this hack works well:
- It’s saves TIME and Energy
It’s EASIER! It’s much less mental work for you. You figure out once what coat/ boots/ helmets/ cups you like – and once you’re committed, you’re done!
- It can SAVE money!
When you’re buying in bulk you can often get a discount, and when you’re planned out like that you can often buy them all when they’re on sale.
- Less fighting over STUFF
When everyone simply has the same coats or shoes we get a lot less caught up in comparing and contrasting what each of us has or doesn’t have. We’re focusing on functionality and comfort rather than what you have vs what I have.
- Less Materialism
Less talk, FOCUS, energy spent on buying new things each season. When all of your plates, cups, bikes etc are the same it removes the tension around what STUFF we have. It means stuff is there to serve us, rather than us serving stuff.
- Easier for STORAGE
Visually simplified, often stackable.
