1-A-Week: Week 37: Letting go of a bad purchase

Sep 23, 2011 by

Sometimes when I buy something, even if I end up hating it and/or not using it, I tend to hang on to it just because I bought it.

Not sure why I do this, but it happens.

This week I’m trying to buck that trend and get rid of something I bought and never used.

Its an Amphipod running belt for holding water.  Its a great product and I bought it used at the REI used gear sale, so I didn’t pay much for it.  It just doesn’t work with my running style so I bought it, tried to use it once and then it has just sat around ever since.

So onto eBay it goes so hopefully some happy runner can use it and it no longer sits around my house.

Do you do this too?  What have you bought that you never use that you still hang on to?


1AW is a project by which I’m getting rid of at least 1 thing each week that I do not need, want, or use anymore. Doing at least one thing per week helps me reduce the clutter in my life and make room for what is truly important.

What are you getting rid of this week? Leave a comment and let me know.
