One of the ways that helps me stay focused on saving money rather than spending it, is to be grateful for the things I already have. As you know, I really do love all 2nd hand shopping but even that can get out of hand. So I thought I'd create a little series called Most Cherished Objects to help me focus on the abundance in my life. So the list will be in no particular order, just things that I love for one reason or another. Simple everyday objects that bring me joy.
First up is a set of teacups that I bought on the second day of an estate sale. I had seen them the first day for $50 which was out of the question, but now it was late in the day. I asked the gentleman the price and he said $5. So they came home with me and I've used them every single day since. They are fine and delicate and are an important part of my morning. I'd say there is a certain elegance about them. Because of their beauty I'm never really tempted to buy anything to replace them. I've even used them here to serve soup in.
What do you think? Do your cherished objects help you feel content?
Have a lovely weekend. x
