  • Reflection Question
    Lifestyle Buy Only What I Need
    As you have reduced your spending, what have you noticed about your 'health and safety' purchasing habits? How might this change your longer term purchasing decisions?

    I noticed that I'm going more often to buy things, because I'm buying only what I really need right now.

    Disposable tampons and menstrual pads are often quite expensive. What are the economic and personal benefits of this switch for you?

    It is much cheaper and I don't need so much storage at home

    I'm doing it together with friends. Because then, I'm more encouraged to continue it.
