I have never been much of a flatware person. I know I have an obsession with this particular topic, but that’s about it. I used to have a few bowls of different sizes, none of which I was particularly fond of. I finally got rid of those bowls after a long period of inactivity and thought, ‘I need to make a list of all the things I really want in one place.’ It was a pretty easy decision to make.
That’s right, I am a flatware guy. And I don’t know if it has anything to do with the fact I just bought this kitchen island, but it sure was a fun decision. I would probably have thrown it out if I had a more conventional one, but I didn’t.
This is a common problem that we all have. We want to buy something we dont need and we want it to immediately have all our wants. If we don’t get it straight away, we might not buy it again, or we might have to spend more money on it later. Most people can get rid of their wants quickly, but not everyone can. I found the process to be incredibly satisfying, and I think anyone can.
I am a firm believer that you should buy something that you dont need right away. In fact, one of the first things I always do is walk away from a sale and say to myself, “what was I really thinking?”. I know this is a very basic concept, but I think that the most important thing for you to think about is what you want/need right now.
In the case of a sale you do need, buy what you need now. No need for a new car, a new outfit, or even a new pair of shoes. If you have the money to spend on a new outfit, you can always cut it off and buy a new outfit later. What you don’t want to do is get stuck buying something you don’t need.
How do you know what you want? The answer is: you want to get right, buy what you want, go for it.
No one is ever going to buy what they want, they are just getting into the real world. I’m just trying to get real. When I bought the new car I was so excited about buying what I wanted, I was thinking about buying what I wanted to buy. I knew I was going to need it.
Not buying what you want doesn’t mean you will. In fact, you might not want it at all, but you might need it. The same is true of what you want. You might want to drive a Ferrari, but you may actually need a BMW.
We’re talking about a product, a piece of furniture, or a piece of interior. It doesn’t have to be a car or a home. If you don’t need or want something, you don’t need it. If you’re not going to use it, you don’t need it. That is a basic principle of being a consumer of anything. If you don’t use it, you don’t need it.
It seems that many people want one thing, and then they end up with something else. For example, if you buy a $1000 flat screen TV and you want to move to a lower-priced model, you may end up with a $400 flat screen TV. What this means is that you have to make a decision. If you dont use it, you dont need it. If youd like it, you dont need it. If you want it, you dont need it.
