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)?
