I'm a Christian, a designer, and a gadget fan who lives in Cheltenham, UK.

This is my blog, a creative outlet to mess around and play with as well as a place that logs my thoughts and inspirations.

Less ›

It is expen­sive in the moment, but not in the long term. The rea­son is twofold; I’ll take more time to make a deci­sion, and some­times that means not mak­ing a pur­chase at all. And of course, if you buy qual­i­ty, it lasts. Both fac­tors reduce your consumption.

Great thoughts from Chris Bowler on buy­ing less and the rea­sons behind it. I try to make my pur­chas­es count, for the rea­son of qual­i­ty and in the long run its a wis­er use of my money.
