I try very hard to be aware of my purchases and ask myself ‘do I really need this?’no matter what I’m shopping for. This year I’m continuing to working towards purging my life down to the bare minimum. Over this Christmas break I’ve sold, donated and traded away so many things. Great stuff that I wasn’t using, or had a place somewhere in my home and therefor went unnoticed. I have tons of room since moving into a bigger place, but that doesn’t mean I want to fill it. That being said, I went to the thrift store today. I went to donate unwanted clothing and of course I found some treasures while I was there. I love tote bags and use them constantly. It’s one thing I’ll let myself buy a bunch of. Beauty + function, you can’t ask for more. I really like this Mendocino tote, and I think it was 50 cents. I found this new Bath & Bodyworks peppermint scented candle for $2.00. I love Bath & Bodyworks, and I love it even more when I can find it at the thrift store.My favourite score was this little marble salt box. ($2.00) I’m not sure what I’m going to put in it, maybe spices? Salt? I didn’t need it, but I love it.
