– Ringbound planner (mine is a Filofax):
– Epilator:
– White Vinagre:
– Brita water filter: (*) – If you purchase these items through the provided link I will gain a small commission from your purchase. This does not affect the final price in any way. Thank you! Despite considering myself a minimalist person or at least an aspiring minimalist, I also believe that not buying anything is not the answer for all of our problems. Some objects, despite being simple in their nature, are practical and useful and have also replaced future purchases due to their reusable nature. Besides , even if some of those items are higher in quality, which reflects in a higher price tag, their durability tends to pay off in the long run and . So without further ado, here are 7 purchases that simplified my life: 1. The first purchase is incredibly practical and it’s silicone bags instead of individual plastic bags. These little bags can be bought online in Amazon and are great for snacks and sandwiches. They are machine washable, microwave compatible, come in a variety of sizes and are incredibly durable. If you are a fan of meal prepping, these bags can also be used to freeze food. Silicone bags replace all the disposable plastic bags I was using for snacks and leftovers.
2. The second item is a ring bound planner instead of a yearly or academic planner. By investing in a good quality planner that I knew I would love and enjoy for years, I stopped having to worry about constantly buying paper planners. I can insert the exact number of pages that I require for effective planning or to write down my to-dos; I don’t even have to go for branded inserts since all I require is some paper and a hole puncher. A ring bound planner lets you go all out in terms of customization and you can either go for more expensive add-ons or DIY most of your planner. 3. The third thing that simplified my life was getting an epilator instead of having to constantly book waxing appointments. I’ve probably saved hundreds of euros because of this over the years. Maybe for people in colder countries this will not represent a huge saving but for those, like me, who live in warmer places and are usually wearing shorts, tank tops and dresses for almost half of the year, this is a great purchase if your use it with proper care.
4. The fourth item is a yearly, semestral or trimestral pass of online grocery shopping. Since I’m a fan of having my groceries delivered at my house after dinner, having a pass allows me to save almost 8 euros in delivery fees per delivery. With a pass I can do all of my grocery shopping online which allows me to strictly control my budget, order a smaller batch of groceries twice a week without having to worry about going out shopping for the whole week, or paying too much for my food to be delivered in a regular basis. 5. Item number five is white vinagre as a cleaning supply. Investing in a good natural cleaning product instead of a large amount of cleaning products allows me to save on space, decision-making and makes the cleaning process a whole lot simpler in the long run.
6. Item number six is a Brita water filter instead of bottled water. I absolutely hate the taste of tap water where I live but I also hate the idea of stocking on bottles of water… so investing in a Brita water filter was the best solution. I bought mine on sale and order filters in bulk online whenever there’s a price drop. If I have to take water with me on the go, I fill a glass bottle with the filtered water and that’s it. No more bottles lying around and less waste being made on a regular basis. 7. Purchase number 7 is not a specific purchase but rather a shopping choice, and that is high quality clothes in a very particular color pallette. Basically all of my wardrobe matches. I’m not a very colourful person and I rather prefer to wear neutrals instead of color. Decision-making in the morning is almost non-existent, clothes are highly replaceable since they mostly consistent of basics and I can always accessorise with scarves or a different handbag. When I make a purchase I go for quality instead of brand and I learned how to take care of my clothes thoroughly to make sure they last as long as possible. ► s u b s c r i b e F T C : This video is sponsored by Dashlane.
