I broke a glass plate defrozen beef in the microwave.

And I thought I should buy a special plate for microwaves.

But then think about that feels so... why ??

Other times I think I should buy some kitchen towels, have 1 just to dry my hands.

Feels like Why to put effort in organization. Do that had sense in the past, but now this small details doesnt care.

I totally get what you are saying. Things which you used to feel were necessary and you bought them without much thought, seem to be no-longer necessary. If they make things easier for you now and in the near future and you can afford them, then buy them now. You might not at present have a big dream or a big plan for the future, but looking after yourself well now is important if you are going to to recover from depression.

Don't be too hard on yourself. If you find yourself needing something in the present--whether or not you had doubts in the past about buying it--and you can afford buying it, then buy it. I wouldn't second-guess yourself in buying something that you need now.
