Our lives are to the point of overflowing with objects we once aspired to possess. For most, we even have duplicates of items because we can’t remember where we placed them. Others use plastic to buy newfangled gadgets which take over our living spaces.
Why do we think that the stuff will make us happier, smarter, or more beautiful? Marketers know exactly what buttons to push with words, images and sounds. As a consumer we need to determine what stuff we really need versus what we want. It’s as simple as that. Be true to yourself.
