So it doesn't surprise me that we are a consumer-driven society- we like new toys! They bring new possibilities, visions of the person we would like to be, a stepping stone towards the life we think we want. But where do we get this idea from? How do we get these visions of these lives? Media, of course!
|Don't get caught in their trap.|
So it makes you wonder, how much of our own taste or likes are really our own?
See if you can abstain from media for a while, and watch and see what happens to your spending habits. You most likely won't even realize all the things you usually "need".
I continue my buy-nothing month, but I must admit it is quite difficult at times. Even though I'm not looking at magazines, I mostly find myself wanting to buy fabrics and craft supplies to create things. At least I feel this is a more noble greed than the usual purses, shoes and clothes I lust after.
Love and lustlessness,
