在前年及去年時,我遇上了生命中的關卡,那時急於斬斷過往舊觀念與價值觀的我,誤解了斷捨離的精神,一股腦地丟棄所有陳舊、自己看不順眼的物品,在短時間面臨了“衣櫥空空、腦袋也空空”的人生斷層期。那段時期,要外出時都找不到自己可以搭上身的衣物,雖然多出了很多空間,卻不知道未來的自己想要穿什麼,或是自己的喜惡為何?

在經歷了一段尷尬時期之後,我發現到了那些被保留下來的少數衣物,都帶有一些特性,而這些特性恰恰符合了《精準購買:比「斷捨離」更極簡、永續的究極之道》A Life Less ThrowawayThe Lost Art of Buying for Life 的書裡所提到的。

妳有沒有聽過有人會抱怨阿嬤時代買的家電為何可以一用十五年以上,近代買的產品卻越來越不耐用呢?答案是生產商計畫性的報廢“陰謀”,(例如燈泡、手機、消費性電器用品的不斷更迭進化發明有可能也是一項陰謀論)。本書作者原本在廣告業工作,所以一開始就用親身經驗分享廣告是如何洗腦,讓你有購物的衝動並如何抑制這種衝動,書中也有些實用的作業將你如何精挑細選你的產品,而她也因為這個理念成立了一個網站羅列了許多值得一買且可保存長久的好物品一覽。

@vejibag was designed by a greenhouse owner determined to find a zero waste bag that can keep fruits, vegetables and herbs fresh, twice as long as a plastic bag can do. 🥕🍅 Taking inspiration from an age-old trick of keeping vegetables wrapped in moistened tea towels or burlap and fusing that with the knowledge that moisture-loving vegetables hold well in cool, damp environments, she developed a reusable, breathable produce bag. The result is Vejibag, (pronounced veggie bag), made from organic cotton that’s grown, milled and sewn in the USA, a produce bag that helps eliminate food waste and save money in the long run!

●購物時,務必準備一份購物清單 以及「不想要清單」,避免衝動性購買,讓自己更加清楚自己的喜惡。

●在經濟許可的範圍內,挑選品質最好,款式又能讓你百看不厭的產品。如果預算不足,也應該好好存錢,買心目中最理想的物品,而非只是屈就於次等物品讓自己內心不舒服。

●在下訂前寫下購物日期、價格和心情,幫助自己回憶與日後省視,也可利用“可怕卻實在”的臉書回顧功能,發文拍照紀錄自己買了什麼,來強迫幫助未來的自己提醒自己。

而實驗至今,「精準購買」的概念在我的生命裡,也代表聰明消費的進化意思,象徵著我開始對自己的消費有了意識,有了意識之後,在每一次面臨到的抉擇之際,更加了解自己,也減少了更多無腦消費的可能。在每一次的永續購買之中,都帶著有“消費現在、投資未來”的概念,因為在此時此刻的當下,每一次越有意識的購買,就越能減少未來後悔的機率。
