Do you keep lists of things you’re hoping to buy? I usually have a few going at any given time. Clothes, home decor, and of course stationery items. All non-essential things. It’s helpful in terms of being more intentional as a consumer. Sometimes something stays on a list long enough that I realize I don’t really want it anymore.

- Watercolour pencils. I love watercolour. It’s one of my favourite mediums. I think I would use it more if I could just keep the pencils with me as I’m decorating and doodling in my notebooks. And then come back in later with the water. This set comes in a tin, and has the gorgeous muted colours I love. It’s quite expensive. But still …
