My husband often brings me back to earth, “Do you WANT a new purse or do you NEED a new purse?” he will say with a smile. “What you want and what you need are two different things,” he reminds me. Most of the time he is right, I want something but I don’t need it. It is an important concept that I try to keep in mind while out shopping. If I bought everything I wanted, I’d be broke! I came across this article and it made me giggle thinking of my husband’s Want vs. Need speech. It also reminded me that it is never too early to try to teach this vital lesson to our kids too.
