I recently started keeping a list of things I didn’t buy. I look back at it often and it fills me with all the good feels. The list reminds me that many of the things I think I NEED TO HAVE would end up very quickly just becoming STUFF. Marie Kondo’s approach, by simply asking “does this bring me joy” has changed the way I look at anything I own. But best of all, my “I didnt’ buy this list” is a great reminder of money I saved.
This post has brought a smile to my face. The things I didn’t buy sounds like a wonderful collection of reality bites. Well done for not buying them!
P.S. I’m most definitely going to adopt this :)

I have been doing this too! I pin them to Pinterest. I still get the satisfaction of acquiring it and the satisfaction of seeing it again. (There are one or two things, though, that I do wish I would have bought.)

was your list on spread sheet or a special app, which works like ad blocker for all the unwanted shopping items?

Love this so much! I’m a huge Kondo-er, and this sounds like a great idea. I’m taking this up :)
