At the end of 2019, I was determined to go on a low buy year for 2020 and that still is the goal. Yet as of now I feel like I’ve been failing tremendously, I’ve purchased items, but I have also withheld from purchasing items.I was tell myself do you really need this, will you use it,or will it sit in your closet.The reason for the low buy year was one, I feel I have an issue purchasin items, I love to dress up dont get me wrong but it currently feel just a tad to much.I have downsized but not enough where I feel happy with .The other downside is I love all the stuff I have but I also feel like some of my stuff isn’t what I want.I know super confusing.To keep my self in this low buy year here are some of the rules I plan to follow and hope they are helpful if you are trying to achieve a low buy year your self.
1. buy experiences
2.cut back on eating out to three to four times a month
3.only necesistes when it comes to clothing
4.no random buyings
5. gifts are find
6 repurpose or resell unused items
8 refelct on purchasing and ask yourself is it worth the hours you’ll put in to pay for it.
As I move into the weeks ahead I hope I will be working more thoughtfully towards my money, I also will invest more time on youtube (towards money related and low buy channels for tips and tricks)
Living in the consumer world we live in where there are ads literally on the hand of our fingertips and I follow accounts that rave about target deals and walmart deals.I also follow influencers that literally make a living of promoting or sharing their favorite items.I will not lie, I have become a victim to this.Maybe we all have in some shape or form.Today I was sitting at work and I was thinking I want an Ipad, an Ipad
so putting at my list of wants are an IPad
I dont just want to but a credit and swipe it up like I have with many things I have purchased in the past and truly I want to change, so I want to feel like i literally worked for it or that I earned it. So I will start saving for my ipad.Here’s a list of other things that maybe to superfacial so let me share them with you’ll
Random stuff I maynot need but I think a list of three is to short again the consumerism and wanting more issue.
4.a dresser for the tv( tv stand)
5.drapes( i actually need these)
6.bike or rollerskates(dont really need these but it be fun)
Anyways with that already said stay tune to my low buy year:)
Hola again, I believe this site is darn nearly two years old and maybe round 20th time in the revamping of it.Allprettythoughts was born after I decided to end my two year old blog that was my baby.I felt the need to want to write and share, but allprettythoughts wasn’t or is’nt what mybravediaries once was, to me,I used my blog then for putting my best work forward, or I thought I did, I had some followers and the views were always good.I shared many of trips on there and to be honest I even had guest writers.My friends where so supportive of mybravediaries, they raved about my blog.Until I pulled the plug on it,I never shared allprettythoughts with them, maybe fear,and maybe for that same reason, I stayed away.
Allprettythoughts came from me trying to be positive during a time I was being really negative.Also me being very green eye monster. I welcome you to my blog for the billionth of time as I pick up this hobby and ride with it.
Allprettythoughts is born from a first generation hispanic women, thru the adversity of being a Millennial and striving to be the best version of one self.
Be ready to indulge! and welcome again:)
Hello, I’m excited to say.. we have made it another decade and as we are only into day 8 of the new year and the decade its crazy to see this era quickly already moving.I started to do some type of blog since around 2011,I was inspired then by someone that was important to me at the time.Even he wrote more like love items on there and poems.I started to write about similiar items, I started to drifed and be more of my own.I would write short stories, I would write about adventures provide some memories , some advice in my blogs.I would recommend items ,places and so forth.Then I felt a sense of privacy striped away from me when I had been working on a solid two years on my blog.
I’ll keep it short I just felt like my room and space was rob from me, since then its been two years and I’ve payed the premium price for this site and still haven’t put much work on it.But I wanna make this what it once was for me a free outlet being able to share but feeling like I’m letting a stranger into my thoughts or at least not allowing them to have that power.
So brining back to writing the adventures, the struggles, the advice and everything peachy king that I love.I will be doing a 30 day challenge soon stay tune!
