There may not be many of you who haven’t already seen this but I’m linking to it because this, in particular, rings so true.
The easiest way to save money is to stop buying other pens. I often find myself thinking “OH MAN I WANT THAT” and making an impulse buy on a cheaper pen. It’s much easier to pull the trigger on a few $40-$50 pen than one $150 pen. I love my Lamy Safaris, but having six of them could have resulted in one big purchase as opposed to six small ones.
I’m not very good at this.
