NoBuy Year 2020 – Febuary check in

February is over and I went over my budget.

People I talked to told me that 200€ were a lot of money for a month and in my experience, that is not the case. In a month with 31 days, that’s about 6,50 per day. And if that is the budget for everything but rent and recurring bills, and has to pay for everything from food to public transport tickets to going to a café sometimes to replacing stuff that needs to be replaced… that’s not that much.

I spent 137€ on groceries, which comes to 4,72€ per day. (January was 3,80€ per day) Also I bought bus tickets in advance, for a yarn festival in Leipzig that will take place in April. They were 24€. I also spent 7€ on replacing a safety reflector vest that I somehow managed to lose, 8€ on a present, and 1,50€ on a measuring cup. The other thing I bought was vitamin supplements for 23€ total, because I’m going 90% vegan this year, after having been 90% vegetarian for the last 20 years. I never really had thought of my nutrient needs. Going vegan is a good opportunity to change that. Lastly, I spent 26€ total on food and drinks in the café where our knitting meetup is taking place and on getting falafels when I had my last tattoo session.

In the end, that made me go over my budget by 23€, but to me, my spending in February still feels very minimalist. In contrast to January, I did not buy anything but stuff that was really necessary. But I spent more on drinking coffee and eating falafel, a little more on food, a bit more on health, and the things I bought were more expensive than the used gadgets I bought in January.

So it is a tiny bit disappointing to have not bought anything, having had the shortest month of the year, and still having been unable to stick to the budget. This won’t be a problem though because I went under my tattoo budget in February and my paycheck for January was a tiny bit higher than expected.

Despite not buying anything gadget wise, I received a nice gadget as a gift: It is a sigma bike computer. One of the old fashioned ones where a sensor is installed at the front wheel and the computer counts the revolutions of the wheel per second and calculates the speed and distance of one’s ride. I used it to track my bike kilometers in February, and I did ride 304km! However, the bike computer was not programmed to recognize leap years, and it threw my total off a little.

So yay, on to March!!

Stuff I enjoyed in February:

  • Knitting
  • Cooking delicious food
  • playing table tennis with my coop mates
  • taking walks in sunny weather
  • Getting tattoos
  • using the new bike computer that I received as a gift

First NoBuy 2020 Check in: January

So far, it’s going very well!

I’ve been budgeting in order to save some money for getting tattooed and two thirds into the month, I was clearly under my budget of spending 200€ per month for everything. If all goes well, I’ll have some money to save at the end of January, which is next week.

I spent most of my money on food, some staples had to be bought, like soy sauce, tea, or coconut oil, and I got a large amount of potatoes and apples. Now that I’m checking prices much more, I do realize how much cheaper packaged food is in comparison to unpackaged food. One extreme example were apples, which cost 3€ per kilo unpackaged, and 0,70€ per kilo when you bought the 2kg-plastic bag. I thought that was obscene, and so I decided to buy a 5kg carton box of apples for 5€ at another supermarket.

I’m sticking to my low waste principles nonetheless, because this is not about saving money at all costs. It is about not buying unnecessary stuff, and for me, buying low waste is a thing I deem necessary and worth doing. I have given in to buying tofu in plastic packaging though. I want to eat the nice tofu products, and I don’t have time and gear to make tofu at home.

And I think I’m going to stop buying vegetables at our local farmers market. It’s such a posh market that the stuff there is horribly expensive. Most of the time, the local organic store is cheaper and, unlike most vendors at the farmers market, the food is organic, and they get vegetables from a local leftist farmers collective/coop. So… much better overall!

Don’t buy – DIY!

Doing a Nobuy doesn’t mean you have to miss out on nice things, though: I had used up two nice candles that had come in decorative glasses, and I refilled them using wax from burned candles and a wick I had in my stash. Also, I ran out of body lotion and tattoo aftercare, and my hand lotion bar is also almost used up. All of those 3 things got replaced by a homemade lotion bar (link leads to the recipe) I could completely make out of ingredients I had at home! I used beeswax, shea butter and coconut oil, plus a few drops of vetiver essential oil. It turned out that this homemade lotion bar works as well als the super expensive “ClimbOn” hand lotion bar I had before, it soothes itching and moisturizes healing tattoos, and it does a good job as a body lotion, too.

Things I bought which I didn’t “need”

I put need in quotation marks because at the end of the day I needed all of those things. I don’t regret anything, on the contrary. They are more than pure survival, but nothing is just a luxury.

The stuff I bought “in addition” to bare necessities amounted to about 35€. The biggest thing was a used mandolin from ebay Kleinanzeigen for 10€, because I realized eating cabbage was a cheap healthy winter veggie but cutting it was so much work that could be so much easier. This mandolin cutter is a great tool and I don’t regret buying it! It’s also made from steel and very sturdy, the blade can be replaced or taken out to sharpen, so it’s also very sustainable.

The other things I bought were darning needles because I had misplaced all of them and gave up after searching for them on two consecutive days. And a bamboo toothbrush, because the toothbrush I keep at work needed to be replaced and I thought I could get a greener one this time.

The other expenses were 5€ for beverages at the cafe where we have our bi-monthly knitting meetups. Usually I would spend 15-20€, because we get nice takeaway food at Knit Night, but I stuck to my goal and had brought my own food from home.

There were a few stamps – I had decluttered some photos of graffiti of the 90ies and instead of just throwing them away I chose to send them off to someone who was interested in them. Also I miscalculated the shipping costs for an ebay item I had sold and so I had to pay 1€ extra.

And I bought a safety razor which is quite popular in the “Zero Waste” community, because my razor from the 90ies is running out of blades and they’re all throw away plastic parts which I plan to avoid in the future. I got it used on “ebay Kleinanzeigen” for 8 Euros, and even from someone in my neighborhood!

OOPS – unforeseen expenses

Near the end of the month, one of my bicycles’ pedal hooks broke in half. I had to get replacement parts from the bike store, and even though they mounted it for free and gave me a little discount, it cost 20€. There could have been a cheaper solution, but I really like the pedal hooks, with them you can push and pull the pedals without having clickie-pedals. It’s better for the knees.

Free things I enjoyed in January

Me and some folks on Mastodon are doing a sports-along together, and a couple of them are also doing the new years program of “Yoga with Adriene” #YWAhome. Also some folks have set themselves a challenge to walk at least a mile everyday and they’re tagging that with #FrozenFeet2020. I’m doing both, the yoga and the walking, but I don’t manage to do everything every day, and that’s okay.

Another thing I’m enjoying is cooking delicious recipes. I’m trying to eat more vegan this year and because I’ve got a pressure cooker now, I can cook beans and chickpeas really reaaaally fast. This is not really a free thing, but it’s cheaper than buying ready-meals or eating out. We found a nice recipe for peanut sauce and made this a few times now! I also got tattooed and I sometimes bake for my tattoo appointments. That way me and the tattoo artist and their colleague can have a little cake. So I made an awesome vegan banana bread from stuff I already had at home.

And I’m really enjoying working with things I already have, I’ve spread out my yarn stash and checked everything, as I do every January. This is always the time of year when I’m highly motivated to enjoy knitting up all this beautiful yarn.

And finally, I’ve watched all the Nobuy year videos by Hannah Louise Poston on youtube, the beauty youtuber who got this all started. I knew that TQ, who originally got me on board with the NoBuy, was inspired by her. But I hadn’t yet watched her content myself. Now that I did, I have to say that she really dives deep and self reflects on her consumer habits in a very interesting way. And, as a side effect, I learned a lot about beauty and skincare.


This month, I encountered difficulties in getting a refund from my health insurance. I’ve been making calls and talking to people about this for one year now and the sum I’m going to get is 160€. Which is a lot of money, but a year of hassle and phone calls?! While the hardest thing was to find out what’s actually blocking the process of getting this refund, now this has changed. Insurance told me what is in the way, and my dentists office is kind of refusing to give it to me, I called 3 times and they promised to help me 2 times, and the third time they emailed me to inform me I’m wrong and didn’t actually need the thing. Now this has become the hardest thing.

I love to feel financially independent, but budgeting and saving money for things I love, plus the setback with this refund makes me feel dependent and bad. Suddenly budgeting and being on a nobuy year isn’t fun, it’s horrible. Next week I’ll try to convince them that I need this paper or try to convince the health insurance that they don’t need it. But right now, I’m waiting and feeling shitty.

I used to have an attitude towards money that didn’t put too much weight on money. “It’s just money”. It’s just a symbolic thing, it’s totally replaceable, it has no emotional value, I don’t care about it!

The trick was not to act as if it was “just money”. I acted like I very much took care of my money, but in my mind I didn’t think like that. This allowed me to be frugal but not feel constrained and bad about “having to” be frugal.

I caught myself clinging to these 160€ which I didn’t even have and feeling bad and constrained and like outside forces literally stole my money (which they did, but that’s not my point). What I have told myself in the past was “It’s just money” and then I took a little break and picked up the threads again a month later, and that is what I need to do now. I need to say goodbye to those 160€, make peace with the fact that I need to work a few shifts more if I really needed this extra money, and then, in practice, continue trying to get it.

This was a really interesting observation for me, because all of my life, I’ve been good in dealing with money. So I never had to learn what exactly made me good at it. I think this is a piece of the puzzle: Act like you give a shit with money, but don’t give a shit in your mind.

Another thing I noticed is that now that the newness of buying low waste and tidying up Marie Kondo-Style is gone. When I stopped shopping in 2019, I could redirect these energies into getting high quality unpackaged food and spending a lot of time with stuff I already owned by Konmarying it. And because both of these things were super fashionable (Marie Kondos Show had just aired on Netflix, and everyone was talking about it) I never felt like deprived of taking part in trends and fashion fads. I could consume a trend by living anti-consumerism, and that seems like a contradiction, but that was what it was.

In 2020 it looks like I have to do the real thing now. And it is time to remind me that while the fancy feeling of novelty has worn off, those things are still here in my life and I can still use them as tools: becoming more picky instead of craving random things, and cherishing what I already have.


Also, according to my rule that I have to ponder new acquisitions before I make them, I’ve started to list stuff that I want on my Wishlephant wishlist. I don’t know if that is wise, because it reminds me that I wanted the stuff and eliminates the chance that I just “naturally” forget about wanting some things.

There are some small things on the list that I’ll eventually get with my monthly budget, and there is a big thing (the e-book-reader) that I will most likely not buy this year, because it is just too expensive, and I already have an e-reader, but it’s a kindle and I want to become independent from Amazon and be able to read books from the library on the reader. That is impossible with the kindle.

Another thing I might need this year is a newer phone. I am currently using an old phone from 2012, wich I got in 2017, it works well, but some apps don’t work with it any longer. I found it very essential for navigation on my cyclingtour in 2018. The only thing I used for navigation then was my phone. The alternative would be to get a used navigation device and continue to use the phone, for telephone calls only and whatever app continues to work. I would have to research the lifespan of navigation devices though. If they aren’t significantly longer than those of smartphones, it makes sense just to find a newer phone.

But – and that is also a possibility – maybe the phone makes it to 2021, with navigation working on it!

NoBuy 2020!

How did my Nobuy Year 2019 go?

My NoBuy Year 2019 is almost over. And I mostly stuck to my rules which were: No yarn, no stationery, pens and art supplies, no outdoor gear, no toiletries and bodycare products except for when I run out or something needs to be replaced.

I bought two fountain pens, which was against my rules, and I replaced a set of camping stove pots maybe a tad too soon, and recently I bought a bar of soap after I could not find the bottle of liquid soap I still had. (When I could not find it, I assumed I must have used it up). Other than that, that’s it (except for the stuff I’m forgetting right now) Ah, no – I bought a box of paper for my bookbinding hobby, although I have enough paper already.

But I bought a few other things. Like noise cancelling headphones, a (used) pressure cooker, new shoes, concert tickets, and other things like a (used) shredder (for old papers, I was doing the #Konmari thing) I replaced an old electric toothbrush with a new one and I bought a t-shirt as well. A thing I found annoying: I had konmaried my “electric komono” (sorry for the lingo, komono means “miscellaneous items”) and I had a few battery chargers. But I could not remember where I had put them. So I became certain I had thrown them away and bought one, only to find them again 2 weeks later.

Still, that is not much buying, and all in all my nobuy-year 2019 was very successful.

My goal was to reduce or even stop my “retail therapy” habit, that means, times when I would go and get myself some nice stationery or art supplies or yarn or outdoor gear to make myself feel better.

I also wanted to stop buying things that I craved because they were advertised to me in a very convincing way. I don’t mean big companies with big ads. I mean smaller companies whose stuff is just so cool and trendy and it’s permanently marketed at you via influencers: Zero Waste Gadgets like stainless steel food containers or fancy glass bottles, for example. I already have such a food container and I have enough reusable bottles, I can also just reuse a single-use glass bottle from the store if I want one.

and thirdly I wanted to use and appreciate what I have. I wanted to “shop my stash” instead of shopping in stores.

And it worked. And I want to keep going, because it made my life better!

I was even able to save some money to spend on tattoos, I got a staggering 5 tattoos this year! And I went to two nice concerts, and I did do two amazing cycling tours in 2019. I don’t feel that I have missed out on *anything* in 2019! Hooray!

No Buy Rules 2020

1st rule: Buy nothing. No art supplies for example, no stationery, clothes, yarn, fabric, books, skincare products, electronics, outdoor gear, and also no yoga subscription. Yes, radical! I love it! Instead of defining what I can’t buy, I will define what I *can* buy.

So, here are the exceptions:

things I can buy:

  • replacements for broken things I deem necessary and if I run out of anything, like bodycare products.
  • food, of course. I can buy all kinds of food and that is the one category where I don’t want to sacrifice quality for frugality. What I want to aim for is packing a lunchbox more often, instead of eating out or buying takeaway food.
  • Bike Maintenance and repairs are very important and of course I will get them, because I know a good bike mechanic and I’m very grateful I don’t have to repair stuff myself.
  • I can buy train tickets for going on holiday etc., concert tickets, and get tattooed. The nobuy year serves the purpose of not accumulating useless stuff, and it’s not about depriving me from experiencing things or doing my.. (cringe) ..”tattoo journey”. I will however have to be mindful of money in 2020 so I might cut back on concerts to save money for travelling.

Acquisition rules

  • *If* I buy something, I want to be mindful of it, and that means I want to first repair the things I have, if possible. If repairing is impossible, only then can replacing something be an option.
  • If I feel I really want and need to buy a thing, I want to wait 2 weeks at least, better 4 weeks or as long as it takes, until I decide if I want to buy it or not.
  • If possible, get things second hand.
  • I want to write down what I spend on things.

Finally, I’m curious to explore (very cautiously) minimalism in 2020. I don’t think I will ever become a minimalist, but I always was fascinated by the idea of simple living and I have always felt attracted to it.

Erste Kaufnix Härten überwunden

Im 2. Monat meines Kaufnix-Jahres (die Regeln habe ich mir selbst ausgedacht und sie beziehen sich auf 4 Bereiche, es heisst nicht, dass ich 2019 gar nichts kaufen soll) gab es erste Härten.

Ich bekam von meinem benachbarten Outdoorladen einen Brief, in dem mir mein Bonus für 2018 mitgeteilt wurde. Man bekommt alles zusammengezählt, was man 2018 dort gekauft hat, und dann bekommt man Prozente, die man dann als einen Gutschein zugeschickt bekommt. Immerhin waren es stolze 24 Euro, die ich bekommen habe! Yay! (Ich glaube, der größte Posten 2018 waren zwei edle, große Ortlieb-Fahrradpacktaschen, und dann kam noch Kleinkram zusammen.)

Sofort hatte ich Lust, den Gutschein auf den Kopf zu hauen, denn obwohl ich 2019 kein Outdoor-Equipment kaufen darf, darf ich ja welches geschenkt annehmen, wa? Aber die Stimme meiner Vernunft sagte, es wäre unklug, den Gutschein jetzt zu verbraten, für irgendwas, wenn man ihn später vielleicht brauchen kann, um ihn für etwas Notwendiges zu benutzen. Vielleicht geht ja etwas kaputt und muss ersetzt werden. Also verkniff ich mir das sofortige Konsumieren, obwohl die eine flüssigkeitsdichte Edelstahl-Essens-Dose haben, die genau diese Summe kostet, und die ich sehr hübsch finde. HNARGS. Jedoch, nach inzwischen 4 Tagen nicht-shoppen kann ich eigentlich damit leben. Die Box wartet auch noch in 1 Monat auf mich, falls ich es gar nicht mehr aushalten könnte.

Das Andere war heute, als ich meinen Zahnärztin-Termin hinter mir hatte. Nichts schlimmes, nur eine Kassenkrone einsetzen lassen. Das Metall (es ist irgendwas mit Edelstahl) sieht echt schick aus, finde ich, und es hat keinen elektrischen Leit-Effekt wie früher das Amalgam. Kann man also echt mal machen, und ich muss *nix* dazu bezahlen! Ja, ich also aus der Praxis raus, und ich hatte Kauflust. Denn früher, als ich Zahnarzt-Angst hatte, habe ich mich nach Terminen immer mit ner Kleinigkeit belohnt, die ich mir dann gekauft habe. Das habe ich dann aber als nette Gewohnheit beibehalten. Also ging ich raus und dachte so: Hm, da ist so’n Lush Schuppen in der Nähe, ich könnte mir ja so ne unverpackten Hauptpflege-Sachen kaufen. Obwohl ich noch genug da habe, die ich aufbrauchen will! Ich bin auch da hart geblieben und es ging vorbei.

DIY Update: Ich habe Kimchi angesetzt!

Hier steht mein Glas Kimchi-Ansatz, ich hoffe, es geht nicht kaputt, denn ein paar leichtere Gemüseteile steigen immer an die Oberfläche der Lake und da sollen sie eigentlich nicht sein…

Das ist eines der Rezepte, die ich verwendet habe. “Simple Kimchi” beim Zero Waste Chef. Obwohl ich echt müde war gestern nach der Arbeit, habe ich mich zusammengerissen, denn der Kohl drohte zu verwelken, und ich wollte nichts wegwerfen, nachdem ich es extra dafür erst gekauft hatte.

Ich habe die speziellen Chili-Würzflocken nicht gehabt, deshalb ist mein Kimchi gar nicht wirlich rötlich, denn ich habe gestossene Chilis pur verwendet, und davon darf natürlich nicht so viel rein!

Konmari geht weiter

Ein Glas Tee mit einem Herz aus Fahrradkette und daneben Das Buch Magic Cleaning von Marie Kondo.
Ein Glas Tee mit einem Herz aus Fahrradkette aufgedruckt, und das Buch “Magic Cleaning” von Marie Kondo.

Eine Hörerin meines Strickpodcasts, Dorit, hat mir – so nett! – das Buch von Marie Kondo geschickt, das sie nicht mehr braucht. Ich lese es gerade und bin noch beim Vorgeplänkel, bzw. der Theorie, aber schon die ist sehr interessant. Hier erklärt sie, warum sie nach Kategorien aufräumt und nicht nach Räumen, oder auch, warum Wegwerfen alleine nichts nützt. Sich aufs Aussortieren zu konzentrieren, und Dinge wegwerfen hat bei ihr gar nichts gebracht, und das liegt daran, dass man den Fokus nicht darauf legt, was man eigentlich gut findet und behalten möchte.

Ich kann das nur bestätigen. Ich habe auch mal bei einer minimalistischen “Ausmist-Challenge” mitgemacht, und ich miste durchaus gerne aus. ABER ich ging neulich durch meinen Raum und suchte nach Dingen, die ich nicht mehr brauchen würde, und ich fand nur sehr wenig, irgendwie fünf kleine Teile, irgendwelcher Tand, super nutzlos, aber durch ihr Verschwinden war gar nichts gewonnen. Wirklich alles raus räumen und durchsehen, was ich bei mir behalten will, DAS hat einiges gebracht und dabei ist (ich habe mit Wäsche und Hosen angefangen) jetzt schon so viel Platz frei geworden.

Der Verstand sagt, eigentlich müsste ich ja auch anders zum Ziel kommen – aber die Praxis zeigt, dass es nicht so ist. Oberflächlich über einen Raum drüber scannen, um zu sehen, was weg soll: Bringt wenig und z.B. die Stauräume in den hinteren Schubladen oder unterm Bett kümmert’s wenig.

Bye Bye Schals

Ich habe beim Aufräumen im Schrank beschlossen, dass all meine Baumwoll- und Seidenschals, allesamt Geschenke, mich verlassen werden. Klar sind die schön. Deswegen haben nette Leute sie mir über die Jahre vielleicht auch geschenkt. Aber ich kann sie nicht gebrauchen und trage sie nie. Zwei Seidenschals habe ich an eine Kollegin weitergereicht, und jetzt habe ich noch drei, die ich versuche, über Ebay Kleinanzeigen zu verschenken.

ein Rosa gestreifter Webschal liegt auf einem grünen Polster.

Aber grade geht es mit den Schals eher nach dem Motto “Ilse Bilse, keiner will se”. vielleicht taugen sie noch als Futterstoff für irgendwelche DIY Taschennähprojekte.

Kaufnix und Aufräumen


Heute wäre bei meiner Zero-Waste-Challenge dran gewesen, eine Wanderung zu unternehmen. Aber das klappt nicht: Gestern hatten wir eine anstrengende Backschicht, ich habe bis 11 geschlafen und das war eh schon zu kurz, und dann war heute der Markttag, wo wir immer für die Woche das Gemüse und den Käse einkaufen.

Am Käsestand sind wir von einem anderen Kunden gelobt worden, weil wir eine Glasdose dabei hatten, er fand das voll gut. Draußen hat es geregnet und ich hoffe, es wird noch viel mehr regnen diesen Winter, damit sich die Böden gut vollsaugen und wir, bzw. die Pflanzen, es besser überstehen, wenn wir noch so einen trockenen Sommer bekommen sollten. Ich hätte ja Lust auf einen sonnigen Sommer. Es muß aber bitte nicht ganz so trocken sein wie der 2018. Und dafür ist Winternässe die beste Investition!


Ich habe Klamotten aufgeräumt. Nicht alles, aber immerhin etwas. Los ging es damit, dass ich diese Aufräumserie mit Marie Kondo gucke, und dieses vertikale Aufbewahren von Stoffdingen interessant fand. Also habe ich meine alte Lasagneform, aus der die Beschichtung leider abgeht, rausgenommen und die Stoffbeutel zum einkaufen gefaltet und vertikal da rein gepackt, damit man sie alle schön sieht.

All die Stoffbeutel sind jetzt schön gefaltet in einer alten Lasagneform.

Daneben habe ich immer eine Papiertüte gehabt, in der all meine Stricktücher und Schals reingestopft waren. Die habe ich dann gefaltet und in eine Box aus Flechtwerk einsortiert, so dass ich sie alle sehen kann. Die Box musste aber auch erst mal frei werden, deshalb ging ich an meinen Klamottenschrank und habe Hosen aussortiert.

Ich hab gar nix zum anziehen! Und das ist okay.

In dieser Marie-Kondo-Serie haben die Leute immer riesige Berge mit Kleidung, und sortieren sich da durch, bis sie eine nette Kollektion übrig behalten, die sie mögen. Bei mir ist die Hosensituation sehr anders. Ich hatte quasi nur noch Hosen, in die ich gar nicht mehr rein passe, die ich einfach vergaß, mal auszusortieren, und dann habe ich noch vier Hosen, in die ich reinpasse, und diese vier Hosen habe ich 2017 und 2018 neu gekauft. Davon ist noch eins eine Sommerhose, und eins ist eine Hose, die ich irgendwie “schonen” will, weil sie teuer war (so ne Fjällräven-Outdoorhose). Das bedeutet: Ich hab grade 2 Hosen, wenn ich die eine nicht anhabe, hab ich die andere an.

Ich habe alle alten Hosen in eine Tüte gepackt und bringe sie demnächst in die Altkleidersammlung. Aber zwei der alten Hosen sind dafür zu schade. Das ist eine Outdoor-Funktionshose, die mit zu den langlebigsten gehört, die ich je hatte, und eine Zimmermannshose, die ich für teures Geld im Berufskleidungsladen erstanden habe. Beide passen mir ganz knapp nicht mehr, und vielleicht finde ich dafür Leute, die sie gerne haben würden.

Aber so im großen und Ganzen passt mir der Hosen-Minimalismus ganz gut. Ich dachte ja immer, mein Körper bleibt jetzt so, aber nur für den Fall des Falles, das das nicht so ist, macht es sich gut, Hosen auch wirklich abzunutzen, bevor man raus wächst. Und das geht kaum besser als wenn man nur zwei Hosen besitzt, und diese halt abwechselt.

Deshalb auch hier: Ich bleib bei #noBuy!
