We are sure that every person at one time faced with unusual finds. And not somewhere in the excavations of ancient cities or in the grandmother’s garden, but right at home, in the bowels of the accumulation of rubbish and long-forgotten things. But how do these “precious” deposits appear? And why do people continue to buy in stores something that will definitely replenish the collection of junk without becoming part of at least some kind of image? Let’s figure it out.
Memories that are sad to say goodbye
We often tend to attach memories to some physical objects. And if we talk about clothes, an example is a pair of worn trousers, whose appearance has deteriorated a long time ago, the style is not modern in any way, but they occupy almost the most prominent place on the shelf, because: “I wore them at sixteen! When I was young and carefree! And she could fit into them, by the way. In this case, it is longing for the past, but there can be an infinite number of reasons to keep this or that thing. But not all of them are worthy of such attention. Attachment to the long gone slows us down on a subconscious level. Trying to return the lost, we do not build the present, but simply cling to what we have long experienced. You should prioritize and find the strength to say goodbye to the past, starting to live today. And remember, all wonderful memories are primarily stored in your head, and not on the dusty shelves that are checked once a decade.
“Leave! Will come in handy again.”
Admit it, have you said this to yourself? And how was it useful? Yes, sometimes old things have a “second wind”, but this happens so rarely that it’s not worth the centimeters spent in the rack. The style is cyclical: what has long been forgotten and gone to the pages of history may reappear, but you should not deliberately wait and hope. The texture of things, fabric or patterns will change, so do not limit yourself to a wardrobe that is relevant today. Make room for him. And old things, even if they come back into fashion, will definitely appear in stores, and you can buy them again.
Fear of poverty
Many use rubbish to create an emotional cushion for a rainy day, mistakenly assuming that old things will help them not to feel poor. However, the deposits of junk are of no value, but only give an imaginary faith in wealth in the attics.
The fear of suddenly becoming poor should not be physically reinforced, otherwise you risk really attracting problems. Live intelligently thinking forward, not backward, then your life will become much easier.
A pity wasted money
If a thing that we spent a lot of money on suddenly turned out to be unnecessary neither to us nor to anyone else, it is often left at home as a symbol of … What? In fact, there is no exact word here. Attachment to the price tag does not make the thing really valuable. Money is a relative concept, and if you are not wearing a blouse from a famous brand, because it lost its charm a long time ago, then the blouse is nothing more. No need to have a soft spot for her, just because she once made you significantly reduce your wallet. Psychologically, this puts us in an unnecessary framework.
Why do we buy junk
The most popular reason for buying unwanted items is their surprisingly low cost. Sales subconsciously deprive us of the opportunity to think longer about the need to make a purchase. Let’s imagine a situation. If you show off in the dressing room mirror, looking at shorts for three thousand rubles, then what thoughts arise in your head? Surely: “Do I need them?”, “What can I combine such an unusual texture with?”, “Are they worthy of such payment?”, “Are there similar ones in my wardrobe?”. And if the price of shorts is not three thousand, but only three hundred rubles? Definitely can not do without: “I take it without thinking! That’s the price of a cup of coffee!” But in fact, the thing then lies in the closet until you decide to give it to someone or throw it away.
The point is that price should not affect utility in any way. Think carefully about whether you really need to buy this coat, jeans or sweater, then your wardrobe will never turn into a warehouse of unnecessary things.
