Consumer Mentality

In the world we live in today and especially in our country, it is incredibly difficult not to fall into the consumer mentality of buy, buy, buy, even if you don't have the money! I will be honest, I have been struggling with this lately. Thankfully, I have resisted the temptation, for the most part. I have no debt and my savings is growing. But it doesn't help any that my sister works for Apple and can get a decent discount. I have to constantly remind myself of what are my needs and what are my wants. Thankfully, I have very few needs. Mostly what I am temped to buy are 'wants'. It's definitely not wrong to buy a 'want' every now and again, but the mentality must be avoided! This, however, is not easy!
