is making solid purchases but my only concern is that he just seems to be buying a lot too fast. His taste might change, so he might not like some of his stuff wit passage of time. @DeSense
I agree. I am going to make sure that I don't delete that picture so that when I do look back in 5 years or so how bad it looks. But, it's all for fun.
Though I was about to add, solid advice nonetheless, and based in part on your own recent experience. If you can follow your own advice in this instance + alter the types of purchases you are making, which recent evidence suggests you are, then lessons well and quickly learned, or at least well on the path to reform.
I too have been finding this thread very useful for thinking about streamlining my purchasing habits, both in terms of resources, and cutting down on the peripheral noise of what looks tempting (flashy, fun, spur of the moment/seat of the pants stuff) and focussing instead on the basics and solid, fundamental stuff. It may not sound sexy to say it, but I believe we will be smarter (dressed) for it.
