Having moved back and forth to the islands a couple of times and downsizing each time we are very aware of what we want vs. what we need. It's been many years we have been working on this and progressing. We are only now getting down to ACTUALLY having better discernment. And it saves us a TREMENDOUS amount of money. When I think of all I've spent over my lifetime on wants - whew! It's mind-blowing!

We are just getting to the point this year of going through EVERYTHING and organizing our "walk-in" storage bldg. (what was supposed to be my sewing room - ha!) … we are doing it with the mindset of "what we truly need" (to keep/use/etc.) vs. sentimentality even. If we don't use it/lose it - ha!

As far as "buying" new things … we really think about that more these days up one side and down the other - BEFORE we let the thoughts entrap us. There actually are very few things we need anymore and our wants have started dissipating with practice - just little fleeting "thoughts" from time to time then replaced with "we don't need" …

Confident as well God provides our needs (or gives us the ability) … not our wants. So this helps me in my spiritual practice as well.

Are we really aware of what things we want versus what we need
if you are, would it make a difference in spending or saving money
