hi mom <3
There are two things that my mom and I have in common when it comes to clothing:
1. We usually wear black
2. We appreciate comfort and practicality
These things are very important for the both of us but that doesn’t mean that we have the same philosophy when it comes to shopping. It is actually the opposite.
My mom is a hoarder. Ok, not like the extreme ones you see on television – but hmm, a mini-hoarder. She’s a huge fan of the bold sale signs and she will buy things in multiples even though she obviously doesn’t need to. She appreciates quality but quantity goes even further.
She wants more. I want less.
I get frustrated with my mom for buying so many unnecessary things but I’m not going to tell her what she’s doing is wrong.
I’ve been talking about my philosophy; how I believe in living a minimal lifestyle, which includes having less things in order to live a simpler and easier life. There are many positive sides to decluttering and I’m so happy when I inspire anyone of you guys to buy less or shop smart! :)
Inspiration and guidance is great but I’ll never force my opinion on anyone who believes differently.
Take care of yourself and do what makes you happy but you should also be aware of the impact of your actions. I won’t tell you to stop spending but I will tell you that over-consumerism isn’t good for us and our environment. So keep shopping, but.. don’t overdo it.
