I'm Not Buying Anything Till I Ask These Questions


  1. No idea what I clicked on to see this post and list years after it appeared. This is the best list I've seen on helping to make a decision on whether to buy something or not. May I suggest you re-post this? From the archives??

    1. Terri,

      I will repost it, and clean it up a bit so it is easier to read. It is certainly one worth doing again. Thanks for the suggestion.

    I just found this, too! Really appreciate the questions, they are to-the-point and very helpful. Want to put them on my fridge as a reminder! :)

    1. Erin,

      Questions such as these put a severe damper on the enjoyment of shopping. While most people won't like them, I find them quite useful in pointing out how little shopping we really need to do.

      Necessities, and not much more is all that is required.
