 Remember that every act  of mindless consumption has environmental and social consequences .
 
Maybe it would be mindful to ask yourself  three  questions before any significant  purchase .
 
  • 1. Do I really need this ? Can the item be repaired ?
  •  2. Can I get it used ? Recycled items are less expensive.
  •  3. Is there anyone who might lend it to me ? Items that you use occasionally. http://shareable.net/

    Maybe wait a  week and think it over before making the purchase,
 
   Mindfulfulness and  Simplicity are prerequsites of each other.
