My mom criticized me for my overconsumption, and I retorted back.
After that, I sat down and did an incomplete statistic.
Just in my dorm room, not including the stuff I have back home.
I have 9 drinking equipment: 4 mugs, 2 straw cups, 3 water bottles.
I have around 50 different earrings, 10 necklaces, 10 bracelets, and several rings, and I am still buying more.
I have over 100 different hair ties: about 10 coil-style hair rings, 20 hair ties with different decorations, 30 regular hair ties with different colors, 50 small rubber bands, and several scrunchies.
I have about 20 different hair clips too, I used to have more but I keep losing them.
I have a hill of plush toys on my refrigerator: a reindeer, a white bear, a yellow chicken, a unicorn, a yellow cat, a brown and white dog, a sloth, a unicorn-like Pusheen, a grey dog, a snowman, an elephant, a rhinoceros, a pink piglet, a goose, an avocado, and a little monkey.
For sunscreen, body wash, face mask, conditioner, body lotion, lip balm and so on, I have at least two of each, and I don’t even know why, probably because they have different flavors and functions from each other?
To my surprise, I even have two blankets, five pen begs, three trashcans, four school backpacks, two large camping backpacks, three exactly same phone chargers, and five playing cards (but I don’t even play poker).
For all the items I list above, one is completely enough, but somehow I have more than I need.
Hmmm… I guess now it’s the time to do some reflection and make some changes.
Btw sorry mom : (
