Wants and Needs
For the past few days I continue to sit myself down and explain the difference between a 'want' and a 'need'. I explain that I am a Lentil Clubber. I explain that I am not materialistic and this item would make no real difference to the quality of my life. I explain that this item is really not part of my life philosophy anyway.
All are very good arguments but I still find myself wanting it. I research the net to check if there is a cheaper way to acquire one - there isn't. I search out products with similar criteria but a lower price - it doesn't matter I want that one.
This is a really new experience for me. I would like to blame this on the tv but this isn't a product that is advertised on tv, or at least not that I have seen. I kinda feel like the kid in the toy store just before they throw the "I WANT" tantrum (although I am hoping it doesn't get that far).
And I can't even explain why I really want it, I just do.
