Steal vs 3R Context

When it comes to price, most of the time you get what you pay for.
And if you don't, it's your bad luck :)

I splurge on shoes and leather handbag. They'll last long so I don't toss them away in 1 year.

That means I generate less waste.

Same thing when it comes to beauty. My makeup aplicators (powder puff, makeup sponge) are MAC. They last more than 2 years, compare that to IDR 5000 makeup sponges that degrade on 10th application.

I have a cheap Tammia blush brush and now they shed (they suffer hair loss hehehe) and I have to toss it away. This is when I say

"more is less...More (cost but) less (waste)"

How about my cheap -but supercute-- folding shopping bags?
Hmm..who knows how long they'd last. This is why I don't use them on heavy stuffs. For that purpose I use stronger --and uglier-- shopping bags.

Cheap top (clothes) is another story. I can give it away to my neigbour when I'm bored with them.

But there are 2 things that I don't spend my money much:
Hair elastic and cigarette lighter! Simply because I lost them everywhere..
