I don’t see what’s the big deal in wanting new things or buying new stuff. I don’t want useless things but I like stuff that means a lot to me and keep a collection of some of things that mean the most. Things that I might use on a regular basis or even once in a while. The only things I can think of collecting at this moment are dvds/blurays, books, music cds, Star Trek spaceship models and character sets from other such scifi shows.
At the same time I do appreciate the things I have. I treasure them and hope that they don’t get damaged or too dirty. I should probably take better care of the stuff that I have. I don’t have much so I should keep them clean and neat but not enough. I have no issues with people buying things that give them happiness. I have a limit on certain things. Like shoes – how many pairs could you possibly want to get? But collectible things that aren’t too expensive and cost more decent rates, that’s ok.
