Ever been on the fence about deciding whether or not to buy something? I know I have.
In recent years I have tried to consume clothes and things mindfully. But what does that really mean? "Trying" to be mindful sounds like a rather vague value or philosophy to have around consumption. Now I'm not about to whip out SMART goals, but I think a snazzy catchphrase may actually help: if it’s not a “hell yes” it’s a “no” - adopt it, practice it, and share it.
I am in the process of reframing how I think about costs. If I see something inexpensive that is pOtEnTiaLlY uSeFuL and purchase it, but hardly/don't use it, donate/recycle it, then I am not paying for the object appropriately. Rather, I force the Earth and other people to pay off the debt of my wasted purchase.
Let's move forward, challenge views of Fast Fashion and overconsumption and... try to be mindful😜
