Hand on heart, does everything you have, everything you own, everything that takes up space in your home, matter?
Materialism is a common issue that plagues society these days. It’s all about having stuff, and more stuff.
The advent of online shopping has made it even easier to get stuff.
Don’t get me wrong – it’s great that we have these advances. Online shopping, for instance, is a great step forward.
But it becomes an issue when people take it too far.
When buying the latest thing becomes an obsession.
More stuff doesn’t buy you happiness. Unless the stuff you get are the ones that really matter to you.
Clutter causes chaos and confusion.
Not to mention financial and mindset challenges.
Think quality over quantity.
If you have money to burn, invest in a few quality things – if you need them.
Otherwise, here are some alternatives to consider before you go on your next spending spree:
Invest in yourself.
Invest in experiences.
Save for a rainy day.
Pay it forward – give it to charity, etc.
Having stuff for the sake of having them is pointless, and a waste.
Get something only if it really matters.
