31 Days Journal: Day 4 Buy Less from Amazon
Day 4’s objective (from the 31 Days Challenge at Art of Manliness) was in line with implementing a change, but today was the opposite. I need to remove a negative habit, hopefully to become a better person.
I’m sure there are some bad habits I’ve picked up at work, whether it’s on my instrumental technique or just general admin but I won’t address those here. To that end, I don’t particularly have any niggling habits that could really do with getting rid of. I find myself quite an impulsive person and habits don’t generally develop on me.
So, after that rather dragged out preamble, the thing I can only think of changing is…
Buy less from Amazon.
I look at my credit card bills from the last year and there’s not been a month that I hadn’t spent money on Amazon. Bits and bobs, nothing major purchases but still over the year, those purchases stack up. I’m in the process of buying a car and I know once I have one, maintaining it will be quite costly so I need to trim my outgoings to stay financially afloat.
I will aim to spend nothing more than £400 on Amazon this year. So far, I haven’t spent money on it yet but I need to buy some photographic equipments so apart from that, I think this aim is feasible.
There you have it. We’ll see how this one goes on.
