Since late January, my attitude about material things has drastically changed. I purged all sorts of stuff in February and have settled in nicely with just the items I have and no need for anything more.
My biggest purchases over the last couple of weeks have been a mouse pad and a little bean bag wrist cushion for using a mouse. Mouse accessories. Also, I bought a USB external 10 key keypad for what I used to call the writing laptop so I can enter photo information even quicker as I scan photos and then eventually try to figure out what to do with all of the photos I scan.
Aside from these items, I have stayed away from most purchases by staying out of stores and staying away from online outlets where I used to waste hours of time browsing virtual aisles.
That wasted time is now spent reading or listening to the shortwave most evenings or getting out and doing something although the choices of something to do are limited by our nemesis COVID-19. I’ve also given in and reverted on previous declarations to not watch Tik Tok’s. I watch them because they bring joy and positivity. Any time spent laughing is better than time spent watching online cable news.
