Things She Doesn't Buy That Other People Think Are Weird
There are many things Christine doesn't buy that most people consider standard purchases. Even though her friends think she’s crazy, she simply can’t justify buying things she doesn't need. Here are just some of the weird things she doesn't buy. Tell her in the comments if you think it’s normal or not.
Potato chips are a staple snack in many homes, but Christine doesn't buy them. Sure, they’re delicious, but they’re low in nutrients and they’re very expensive. She doesn't want my kids snacking on chips when there are so many other healthy options, so why even buy them to begin with?
Christine has never purchased the school picture kit from the school. They're ridiculously priced and come in huge packages with 50 wallet-size pictures. Who carries photos in their wallet in 2022? She feels she can take better pictures on my phone.
Christine doesn't buy soda, juice, or any other flavored drinks for her household. Aside from being expensive they certainly aren’t necessary for survival. They're packed with a whole lot of sugar that nobody needs.
Christine’s hack for saving money on cleaning products is to stick with the basics. She loves Bleach, Windex, Dawn, and Tide and says she can clean almost anything with those products. You can do a lot of deep cleaning with hot water, some Dawn, a bucket, and a sponge.
