Things I Don’t Spend Money on

I am on my journey to minimalism and becoming debt free, here are things I don’t spend money on. Some are things that I used to spend money on and others are things that I never bought because I didn’t see the appeal in them.

  1. Pop toys – I used to buy so many pop toys, i think at one point I had almost 50 pop toys or maybe even up to 80. I was obsessed with trying to collect them. I no longer buy these because they might only be $10 each but they add up. I kept a few of them and now my 3 year old plays with them.
  2. Hair products – I don’t do much to my hair, all I need is shampoo and hair conditioner. I probably spend maybe $50 a year on hair products
  3. Newest electronics – I only buy electronics when the ones I have no longer work. I never understood the need to upgrade a phone or smart watch every year. It seems wasteful to me, bad for the environment, and I can use that money for better things.
  4. Beauty procedures like botox, fillers plastic surgery – I am at the age where people start doing botox and doing things to their faces to look young. I am not judging people who do that, but that’s not something that I plan to do.
  5. Hair cuts and hair services – I get a haircut maybe once a year or every two years. I don’t go and get my hair done because that’s something that isn’t important to me.
  6. Nails done – I’ve never gone to get my nails done. Having nails done has never been for me and the kind of jobs I’ve had. I paint my nails once in a while, but don’t go to salons.
  7. Starbucks – Another thing i don’t understand is the people who go to Starbucks every single day. I probably go to Starbucks maybe one or twice a year.
  8. Lularoe leggings – Many years ago I had a collection of about 30 Lularoe leggings. The biggest reason I stopped buying them is because they are an MLM and I don’t support them. Another reason is that they are pricey and not the best quality.
  9. Makeup – I don’t wear makeup, I used to wear eyeliner but after the pandemic I became very lazy and just like to wakeup, brush my teeth, put on sunscreen, and head out the door.
  10. Water bottles – I like taking my reusable water bottle, so much better for my wallet and the planet.
