Want and need

I read those financial blogs now and then. They speak of various way to become rich or just solve your financial problems. They talk about the difference between rich and others. Like that the rich only buy what they need.

So I try my best to separate between my wants and needs. Because they say that the rich only buy what they need. Or that the rich only buy things that appreciate in value.

Well, I know I don’t need a new remote control but dammit, I want this one:

Harmony 550

I’ll see how long I can hold out.

Btw, don’t they also say that many rich folks are unhappy? Could be if they had this remote then they would be happier. 🙂
