The Hardest Part 2: Stuff edition

As far as things go – It’s going to be rough not running out and buying a book I want to read. Granted, I’ve become much better at going to Half Price books –  but that which is not a necessity, is just a want.  And it’s the “I wants” that are ultimately obstacles between us and paying down the debt faster.

Another tough one for me is music. Thankful I have a few iTunes gift cards from Christmas – I’ll just need to use them sparingly, and then simply say “no – I don’t need  that music (or that app) right now. It can wait.”   I did this with a Christmas album I thought I really wanted. Turns out after reading reviews, I never bought it. And now that Christmas is over -meh – guess I saved that $10!

What thing feels like “you just can’t live without” it (but really know deep down, it’s a want, not a need)?

  1. I love books too. A book is hardly ever a “need” (especially when I have 5 or so at home I haven’t read). There are definitely some food items that I feel like I can’t live without. Other than that…hmmm…maybe new shoes. 🙂

    And speaking of books, if you’re looking for a new book that has no cost, enter my marriage book giveaway: http://www.livesimplylove.com/marriage-book-giveaway/
