What a great article. I want to bring good things to my readers and this is one I came across which outlines why people buy things they don’t need and feel they need more.
The advice is sound and I feel an ackowledgement this happens to all of us is important. I would add one more factor to this whole buying “Stuff” thing. I think everyone has a couple items that are their weakness. For me it’s Tech and Computers. I always feel I need the best-of-the-best and then need all the accessories, too. Some I use, some I don’t.
I would add to the article to use Pareto’s law to identify the top few things that are your “weakness” and train yourself to minimize purchases, skip a generation of new and learnt to make due. If not for the cost savings, perhaps for your emotional well-being.
