This list is me banning myself from buying more of the things I already have far too much of, and why.
Thai curry ‘flavour’ things – They all taste like lemons, perfume and disappointment.
Oat/Rice cakes – They last five minutes and then taste like a limp biscuit (not the band).
Tins of Indian style curries – Let’s be honest, I’m just going to order one from Uber anyway.
Vegan/dairy free cheeses – I love the vegan Applewood Smoked, anything else is just a bit meh.
Supplements (apart from Omega’s) – These either give me indigestion and I should be getting them from food anyway.
Takeaway – Yeah, right! 😆
Those ‘waterfall’ cardigans that don’t close – They’re a bit shit when worn with leggings. “Hell no, don’t want no camel toe!”
Trainers – I rarely wear them because I’m always in boots.
Boots – 10 pair 😐
Yoga/lounge pants – Always either too tight, too hot or far too short. Seriously, is it just me, seriously?
Pointy toe’d shoes/High heel shoes – Oh the horror!
Countless Tees and Hoodies – Even I’m getting bored of seeing me in this combo.
Flannel shirts/Big Jumpers – I swapped the above obsession for this obsession instead!
Hair accessories – I wear my hair in a low bun with curly/spiked bits fanned out 95% of the time. Who am I buying these for?!
Dressing gowns – 6! To be Fair one has ears and another has ears and embroidered raccoon eyes on the hood. I’ll give a few to the charity shop.
Partly this is because I’ve gotten gifted quite a bit, through brands or for Christmas but mostly it’s because I can’t resist cute journals.
If it’s dainty I either break it or loose it. I have amassed so much medium-chunky stuff, I’m only buying charity items like pin badges now. I like how I found a reason for more pin badges there. 😁
Certain Disability Aids
Some joints just don’t want to be braced it seems, or shouldn’t constantly be braced anyway, plus they’re too bloody expensive and I can’t try them on beforehand.
Heated neck & shoulder pads – One wouldn’t switch on. One eventually scorched and welded it’s wires together, WHILE I WAS WEARING IT. 😳
I stopped painting my nails for a year because they were too weak but every time I’d see a polish that had an unusual look I’d still buy it. Now my nails are healthy I have a lot of catching up to do!
(I should just stop at ‘makeup’ lol)
Foundation/Base – I’m sticking with the one that works. I need to buy more of that actually.
Eyeshadow – I have a whole rainbow of colours in every finish/texture. Enough!
Eyeliner – Too subtle on my narrow eyes. I slap a load of eyeshadow on instead.
Liquid Lipstick – I don’t want my lips to look like shrivelled prunes after an hour cheers.
I’m a slow reader in the sense that it takes me ages to get around to even starting new books. My reading list is ridiculous and my physical ‘to read’ pile is actually intimidating.
This is the one category I use constantly so I’m applying a one-for-one rule. Use one item up – buy another one to replace it. No multiple versions of the same item.
No face masks – I can never be arsed to use these.
Bath bombs – I don’t own a bath. 😶
