So when I move out I had decided to get a landline for most of the calling and have a computer I already have for my basic internet source. I was wanting a cheap cell phone just for emergencies or when I'm somewhere else or whatever. I remember when I was 11 or 12 I had a Samsung Impression, a touch screen phone with a slide out full keyboard. It was far from state of the art but at the time was pretty awesome. I was wondering if there are any phones like that out today that I can use with any plan, as I plan to get a cheap $30 plan from MetroPCS or something like that. Any help is appreciated!
Hi all... I am in the process of trying to transition into a more "live with/be happy with less" lifestyle. Not too long ago, I would consume a lot of material things, rack up a lot of debt/waste a lot of hard earned money, and just be heavily influenced by the "hype" media tends to put on these material goods. Up until recently, I began to think "wtf am I doing, somethings got to change". I am currently in the process of selling a lot of my material crap just to get some money back and just trying to not centre myself around material goods. I want to learn how to appreciate life and not complicate it by allowing this crap to consume me. So my question is...What are some tips/ideas/things that you guys do to 1.declutter, live a simpler life, and appreciate it more and 2. not allow yourself to be overly consumed by material things?
I have been able to change some habits of consumption for a few months now. At first it feels like an itch, but I get used to it and find it completely normal now.
Manicure \ pedicure: I bite my nails a lot and naturally my hands look ugly. I love getting my nails professionally done. But I realize that the process is wasteful and harmful , so I decided to not ever do it again. My nails are now ugly but I'm at peace with it.
Buying clothes almost every week: I have stopped buying new clothes since last December and donated old clothes. The closet is manageable now. I'm also at peace.
Buying new makeup products constantly: seriously, why do I need 23 lipsticks and 4 palattes of eyeshadows?? I don't need buy the latest hottest lipstick just because the packaging is cute. I'm looking for recipes to DIY simple makeup such as eyebrows liner.
What are the things that you used to do but not anymore? And what impact does getting rid of that thing help?
