When it comes to spending money, we tend to question ourselves and have often walked out of stores empty handed simply because we couldn’t justify the need for certain items regardless of the cost. Despite that, we have however made some large and some small purchases in the last few months.
- Samsung Tablet. This was a birthday present from my husband. He asked me to give him a list of things I wanted and a tablet was one of them. I have been having issues with the battery of my phone and needed to work on my blog more conveniently than my laptop so a tablet seemed like something a little more convenient and mobile than a laptop without replacing the size of my phone. Hence, the purchase of the tablet.
- Milk Frother. We already have a coffee machine at home but with our plan to move back home, I am slowly working through all of the things we bought but never got around to eating and drinking, things like coffee. I am a huge cappuccino fan (something about living in Italy maybe?) so in order to make a fancy cup of coffee, I insisted we purchase a milk frother so I could use up all of the coffee granules in the house and it is a purchase I will definitely not regret!
- Phone Battery. Replacing a phone is a lot more costly than simply replacing the battery. For the last few months, I have been struggling with my Huawei battery suddenly dying at odd times and with hardly any use. I tried everything including resetting my phone and nothing worked. After a lot of research, we decided to purchase a new battery and change it ourselves.(A risky move, anything can go wrong.) All’s well that ends well, I now have a fully functioning battery in a phone that I no longer need to replace anytime soon.
- Pixi Glow Peel Pads. I have been using glycolic acid as a chemical exfoliant for a few months now. I started using Nip and Fab daily pads with only 2.5% glycolic acid and 5% glycolic acid until I discovered Pixi Glow Peel Pads. They have a whopping 20% glycolic acid and because I only have to use them 2 – 3 times a week, the pack of 60 pads tends to last a little longer than the daily pads.
- Powerbank. Out of all the purchases I have made, this has been a game changer. There have been so many times that we have been travelling and had a flat battery forcing us to stop taking pictures or halting communication with friends and family. It is a small investment that ends up going a long way.
- Non-Stick Pans. Yes, I have owned non-stick pans before but never ones that are good quality. We recently purchased a two-pack and they are amazing! Not too heavy and everything literally slides off. It takes two minutes to clean and anything that changes my life that drastically is definitely here to stay and a great purchase!
There are small and large purchases that are capable of improving your quality of life. The battery only cost me a few Euros from Amazon and yet it has saved me a lot more than that.
What have you purchased recently that has changed your life or improved the quality of your life? I look forward to hearing about it!
