Gonna declutter, but still buy more stuff

December 14, 2022 , ,

It’s less than a week before my trip and, of course, I’m slightly worried over funds. Looking around at all the stuff I’ve bought over the last couple years that I never use or don’t enjoy using is making me reflect onโ€ฆmy choices.๐Ÿง That money could’ve been sitting in my bank account right now. No use crying over what’s in the past though. Gotta make a conscious effort to not ruminate.๐Ÿ˜ฎโ€๐Ÿ’จ

Also think I’ll hold on to my mirrorless camera after all. Looking back at the photos made me remember how different photos come out compared to more sharpened smartphone photos. You have to sort of work for a decent shot more, but I guess that’s also part of the fun of using a camera camera.

PSA: Cancel that yearly Nintendo Online subscription! Or whatever other subscription you might have forgotten about. Mine was scheduled to auto renew in early Jan, so I just saved myself from burning $50.

These days, though, I’m pretty happy that Mercari is a thing. Recouping some of what was spent on things that didn’t work out for me is pretty awesome. It’s just a pain to list stuff.

Surely the feeling of wanting more yet less at the same time is plaguing a lot of people.๐Ÿ‘€

Last week, I whittled down my lipsticks by throwing out the old ones and colors that I know I don’t like, which felt good. Honestly, aside from eyeshadow, my makeup collection is manageable now.๐Ÿ’„ So while I have like 50 eye colors, I only ever own one mascara or eyebrow pencil at a time. Mmm, smelling a makeup post in the future.

I’ve got stuff on a wishlist that I already used to send things the house. Some things are similar to stuff I already have, which isn’t ideal, but I knew what I was getting myself into. Really interested in posting comparisons here one day.

And super random, but Elden Ring deserved that award!๐Ÿฅณ I can’t wait to force my sisters to watch me play. It’s going to be great.

    haha, i relate to so much of this post. there was so much makeup i wanted to get this summer but forced myself to sit on it until black friday season and…i didn’t end up wanting them that much after waiting. and i also started using my mirrorless camera and oh boy do i need practice.

    i think i’ll be getting elden ring soon! i feel like i’m the last person in my corner of the world who hasn’t played it yet.

    i hope your trip back home goes well and you’re safe!

    I definitely relate to wanting more yet less at the same time! I’m looking at how my style changed so much over the years because of trauma and insecurity and I’m just shaking my head at how “finding yourself” is such a capitalistic journey lol.

    I also didn’t get rid of my non-smartphone-camera because I like working for my photos sometimes. xP

    I’m looking forward to your makeup post!
