Hi, I'm Dali Wang. I'm an Engineer and YouTuber.
Since April 2021, I started my journey on a No Buy Year Challenge. It has completely changed my life since.
I used to go shopping as a way to kill boredom. I used to spend hours and hours investigating a product to buy without questioning if I need the product at the first place. Shopping became a habit that gave me instant gratification.
2020 has been a difficult year for many. Seeing many people's lives being impacted financially by the pandemic, I started to make reflection on my spending habits and my attitude towards money. The first thing I did was to list down all my spendings in 2020 and made a detailed spending analysis. Seeing not just the money but also the TIME I wasted on purchasing stuff, it shocked me and made me decided to change.
Since then, every purchase decision has to be justified that I absolutely NEED it. I evaluate the cost-benefit of the products and services that I am purchasing based on data and evidence. I also started my YouTube channel to document my journey along the way.
Since I stopped wasting my time and money on the things I don't need, I become more productive, having more time to explore life and opportunities, and more willing to embrace challenges in my personal development.
I can't wait to share this amazing journey with you. I now truly believe in the power of making informed consumer choice.
Btw, my cat - a beautiful Scottish Fold (straight ears) girl Bo is with me on this journey.
