Mantras for Resisting Temptation

SusanCaba
The Resale Evangelista

We all face temptation from time to time–a gorgeous set of dishes we know we’ll never use; the Louis Vuitton suitcase in perfect condition, despite the fact it’s too big to carry on and you wouldn’t risk checking it (and don’t have $2,200 to spare); the motorcycle jacket you know your husband would love–well, you think he would love it–for Christmas.

The Resale Evangelista understands. I’ve slipped, myself.

But if we’re going to simplify life, buy only what we need, and create focused, artful lives, we have to hold strong. Right? So I’ve found some inspirational little quotes to help us maintain resolve. Print them out and tuck them in your wallet. Better yet, wrap them around your credit cards with a rubber-band.

“Are these things really better than the things I already have? Or am I just trained to be dissatisfied with what I have now?”
― Chuck Palahniuk
“Hanging onto a bad buy will not redeem the purchase.”
― Terence Conran
 “The wonderful things in life are the things you do, not the things you have.” 
― Reinhold Messner
