What I’m NOT Buying in 2024:

  • Coffee shop drinks. It is so much cheaper to make a pot of coffee at home.
  • Streaming Services. Between sharing services with friends and family and free streaming services, we don’t have to pay for any tv service.
  • Jewelry. I have a serious addiction to shiny objects and have so many pieces of jewelry that I don’t wear. I need to get rid of some, not purchase more.
  • Holiday Decor. We don’t decorate a lot for the holidays so no need to buy more, even though every Fall I see so many cute pumpkins.
  • Candles. I have a surplus of candles that I have received as gifts so I don’t need to purchase anymore until I have used up what I already have at home.
  • Magazines. I fall into the trap of buying magazines, especially while on vacation and they are never really that good, just mostly advertisements. I canceled my subscription to Pioneer Woman and Magnolia Journal this year since Amazon no longer sells their subscriptions.
  • Coffee mugs. Like seriously, how many coffee mugs do 2 people need? We do not need any new ones.
  • Paper Planner/ Calendar. I have transitioned over to an all electronic calendar system via Google Calendar. Plus we received a free one from our county, which may not be cute, but it is loaded with coupons for local businesses.
  • Sale Items. I will not buy anything just because it is on sale. It has to serve a purpose in our home or replace a worn out item.
