I just watched a video of Cas from Clutterbug where she was talking about 25 things she doesn’t buy. I’ll list them below and tell you if I buy them or not. See if there are any items on this list that you do or don’t buy.
KLEENEX: No, it just seems like a waste when you can use toilet paper.
PAPER TOWELS OR NAPKINS: Yes, paper towels but never napkins. That seems like the tissue when paper towels can do the job of a napkin. I prefer full size sheets but it’s getting very hard to find them in stock.
BULK GROCERIES AND CLEANING SUPPLIES: Yes, groceries if it’s buy one get one and if we use the item often enough. For personal hygiene and cleaning supplies, I do buy items like 3 in a pack.
BOTTLED WATER AND JUICE BOXES: Yes, bottled water. I don’t like how the filtered water from the fridge tastes nor do I like it straight from the tap. I don’t buy juice boxes.
GREETING CARDS: No, I can’t recall the last card I bought.
SPA SERVICES: No, I don’t go to the spa. I’ve witnessed how unsanitary such places can be. I do buy supplies to use at home. One special skincare product that I like is Olay. I use it on my face and as an all over body lotion.
NAME BRAND CLOTHING: No, except for my jeans and shoes. I buy designer brand purses as they’re made well and last forever! I don’t like going to Goodwill. I am sensitive to odors and every thrift store I’ve been in smells really bad.
SCHOOL PICTURES: Yes, I did buy the pictures when my kids were in school.
ART AND CRAFT KITS: No, I have never bought kits but I do buy way too many craft supplies!
A BUNCH OF DIFFERENT CLEANING SUPPLIES: No, not a bunch but I do have a few fav brands that I keep on hand.
NEW CARS: Yes, new vehicles, never used. We just don’t want the hassle of buying a used vehicle and not knowing its history and any trouble that may come along with it. Plus, I like the smell of a new car!!
NEW FURNITURE: Yes, I’m not going to bring bugs and germs into my house by buying used furniture.
EXPENSIVE JEWELRY: Yes, I have gold and diamond jewelry. I have favorite pieces from years ago that I enjoy wearing: a couple rings, bracelet, necklace, and earrings.
LOTTERY TICKETS: Yes, we do buy them. Hubby likes the drawings and I like the scratch offs. They’re just simply fun!!
CABLE OR SATELLITE TV: Yes, cable TV and cable internet as well as streaming service via Netflix and Hulu. Also, ESPN for hubby and grandson for when they’re away from home so they can watch it on their phones.
REPAIR PEOPLE: No, we haven’t had a need for such.
PARTY SUPPLIES: No, it has been a long time since I purchased such.
SOUVENIRS: No, I don’t buy them any longer but hubby still enjoys buying such for himself and for others.
NEWSPAPERS AND MAGAZINES: No, it has been years since we subscribed to the newspaper. Hubby enjoyed reading it but the ink print getting all over my hands and fingers was annoying to me. I did subscribe to multiple magazines but that was years ago. With the internet, who needs newspapers and magazines?
ALCOHOL: No, absolutely not! I do not allow it in our home! The same goes for nasty cigarettes!
EXTENDED WARRANTIES: No, we don’t buy them. Things built these days aren’t quality made and don’t last forever. When appliances, TVs, computers, etc stop working, it’s time for new ones.
SPEND TO SAVE: Yes, depending on what it is as I said up above under Bulk Groceries and Cleaning Supplies.
Do you buy any of these things? Are there any items that wasn’t on this list that you don’t buy?
