Write it down. Get it out of your head and onto a paper. Let the stuff sit there in ink before it comes into your home.
- Then you can.....
- Wait for Birthdays/Holidays
- Find Alternatives
- Let Wants go to Needs
- See a Sale?
- Seek out thrift shops/Goodwill
- Ask Friends to Borrow Theirs
- Decide you don't really need it after all
Some of these things will be sitting there for a very long time and I'm ok with that. As long as the decision to have these things have been thought out one way or the other it will ultimately help simplify life.
Do you have a grown up wish lists?
