The quest and purchase of physical belongings will never fully gratify our desire for happiness. It may result in brief fulfillment, but the happiness found in buying a new item seldom lasts.
We all feel better-off on payday than we did the day before, but that instant satisfaction (that comes with out-of-this-world price tags, stylish shoes and trendy clothes) is sufficient enough to be called dependence, or a bad habit. That guilt or the two voices over your shoulders is a symbol that you know spending most or all of your pay check on material stuff might not be the sensible choice.
It is vital to remember the value of capitalizing in once-in-a-lifetime experiences and valuable memories with our loved ones over pandering on the next hot item, for, as they say, money cannot buy bliss.
