You Don’t Need To Keep Buying New Things

A few weeks ago, a video appeared on my YouTube homepage about achieving financial freedom. It was by a creator I really like, who talked about the importance of not needing to buy new things — especially those really expensive purchases like a bigger apartment or new car. For a long time, I have been trying to cut down on buying more things unnecessarily, mainly for the sake of sustainability and the environment, but this video really struck a chord with me. That, and there’s nothing like a global pandemic to say it’s time to get on top of your personal finances.
