    Last significant purchase was April 2018 where I upgraded my CPU to a Ryzen 5 and the RAM and a motherboard. Oh ... Black Friday November (?) I got 2x 2TB hard drives since my 10yr old 500GBs were filling up. I usually have a additional drive inside for backup (daily automated) and then at least 1 more in the drawer and a portable drive in a safe deposit box.

    Going with the minimalist approach now, downsizing. Getting older uni t shirts out and actually wear them now, better than staying in the wardrobe for 10, 15yrs. Also tourist t shirts and stuff. Have also got rid of many photocopied articles in my ringbinders etc. and using the other side of the paper as scrap paper. The days before our double side printer. My case and mouse/keyb and screen are all 10yrs old.

    Edit. My Mi Phone is 25 months old. Don't use a tablet.

    My last big purchase was a second 4K monitor to go with the one I bought six months prior. So many pixels
