2019: How much will you spend on tea this year?
How is everyone doing so far? Sticking to your goals (if you have them?) My spending is not too terrible yet, but I can already tell that I’m gearing up for some serious spending when sales hit.
I have a $200 White2Tea order chilling in a cart on my phone. It could be higher if I add back in the teas I really want.
Yup! Still zero spent on tea! I feel like I’m starting to see a dent in my cupboard too!
I did buy Foggy Coconut at the very beginning of the year when I had the chance, because you never know when 52Teas is going to reblend your favorite so I felt I had to jump on that! Other than that, I haven’t bought any tea this year! I did buy some of that Mandala “Super Soak” and I couldn’t believe how amazing it was at taking the years of stank and stain off my gravity well infusers! I also bought myself a big British-style teapot for my birthday (I’m a St. Pattie’s baby and it had clovers all over it… I felt a calling!)
Something along those line would have been hard for me to pass up as well. If Butiki did a reunion tour, I’d jump off this self imposed ban immediately!
I’m at around $1200 right now – which is A LOT, but I’m also finishing off my tea at a very equivalent rate to how often new tea is coming in. I’m quite proud of that! Also, since I spent about $3900 last year that averages to around $325 monthly – following that estimate, by end of April I would have been at $1300; so I am technically still doing better than last year!
Oh my gosh! I WISH Butiki would come back! Otherwise, I’ve spent no money on tea this year. It’s probably the longest I’ve went without buying tea for a while now, so I think I’m doing good. But I still have plenty of ‘new-to-me’ tea in the cupboard that I’m trying to drink at least once.
@Dustin + Mastress Alita – great job! I don’t think I’m seeing any dent, heh. And I’m also still buying…
@Roswell Strange – it’s not too bad if you’re balancing in and out! I fear I’m still too heavy on the in :(
I still have tea coming in (White2Tea Club) so I’m not doing so well in balancing the in/out. I go through tea faster as work so I’m bringing in my less liked teas here to try to push through them.
I’m basically on a No-Buy right now till I can drink down some of what I have. I have a tea box coming this month from 52teas that I actually purchased LAST month, but then I canceled the subscription after one month because I didn’t like the idea of paying nearly two months in advance of getting my tea. So whatever this month’s box is that will be it.
I really want to make a YS order for 2019 teas but I just have so much right now I’m not drinking. So yeah, gonna try and drink some first.
