I'm such an impulse buyer - did you have this issue and what did you to overcome it? Thanks Amanda!

I also like to ask, "How can I dispose of this product when I'm done with it"? Can it be repaired? Recycled? Composted? Can I send it back to the company and they will reuse/properly dispose of it? Not REALLY a minimalism question, but this questions keeps me from buying things!

I've been asking myself the same questions about things. I still struggle in some areas, but I went all day shopping with a friend Sunday and we both barely bought anything and what we did buy was either food, gifts for others, or stuff we'd definitely be using so I was very proud of us both. Great tips to remember.

For those wondering about ethical fashion, here are my recommendations:

1) Reformation clothing https://www.thereformation.com/

2) Alternative Apparel http://www.alternativeapparel.com/

3) Krochet Kids https://www.krochetkids.org/

Of course buying secondhand is always a great option too!

Thanks for another great video, Amanda!

Love these tips! LOL to your comment about quitting coffee and your brain 😂 so true!

Target used to be a horrible place for me to go! Now I only go if I need something and a lot of the time I browse around and will still leave without anything! Such a good feeling! Thanks for sharing! ❤️

Maybe it is morning, but makeup is so natural.

The other westerners seem to be making a strong makeup for me as an Asian man, but your makeup is really natural.

Great tips, Amanda! I rarely go shopping for stuff such as clothes anymore, but I did recently buy a car, and I think your questions are just as valid for big purchases like that. Hope you have a wonderful day :)

I always ask myself what would I pay if the item I wanted to buy was at a yard sale? or if I was reselling it what do I think someone else would pay for it. It kind of gives you a realistic perspective on how much something is really worth and usually stops me from buying it. I also try to

pay in cash because it's harder to part with than putting it on plastic.

Totally agree with you on "fast fashion" in my minimalist wardrobe I have nice things I love!

Do I need this or do I want this?
