So I've decided that I am not going to buy any more pants this year. I'm good with my 3 jeans and 2 Elizabeth Suzann Clydes so I'm calling it. No more pants (not even just to review). I think one of the keys to contentment is knowing your "enough" point, and I'm there with pants. The linen Clydes are as close to my unicorn pants as it's going to get and I'm good with that.
I did however buy a new spatula (whoop-di-doo, lol) since one of our Airstream customers ruined one. So I gave the biz the spatula I was using and then bought this. Even when replacing something as mundane as a spatula, I want to make sure it's sustainable and most of all not plastic if I can help it. This teak one may not be as flexible as plastic, but I'm happy that when I'm done with it I can just dig a hole and bury it and eventually it will decompose back to the earth. So I wouldn't advise getting rid of all your plastic, but when the occasion presents itself to replace something that was plastic with something that isn't, take that opportunity!
Also for the month of May I am trying a new thing, and I'm calling it Meditation May. Basically I'm going to try to meditate every day for at least 5 minutes (up to 20 min hopefully). I haven't done a meditation practice for years and I think going back to it is going to be generally helpful. I'm also going to stop looking at my phone first thing in the morning. I know it's a terrible habit but I always indulge myself. However, I think it ends up being a huge time suck first thing in the morning. And lastly, I'm trying to cut out excess processed sugar from my diet this month in anticipation for a Hawaii vacay for a bachelorette party (and also technically a trip home for me). It might seem like a lot of new habits (well anything more than 1 seems like 'a lot' to me) to tackle in one month, but I'm hoping the meditation will be a keystone habit to get me recharged and changing things around!
Oh and I read this post from the Luxe Strategist that I very much relate to. I spend money on things when I know I'll get good use out of them and use them frequently (like my bags and Elizabeth Suzann items) or if they're my unicorn (again bags and Elizabeth Suzann). I also just love how she explains everything so clearly and then gives her examples!
