Where does all this “stuff” come from? Do we really need to buy things every day? I just don’t get it.
I work to have a place to live, to eat, and I guess to be a “good citizen”. To do my part to stimulate the economy.
If I didn’t need all this useless crap that I am told by marketers I supposedly just have to have, I could live a lot more frugally. It’s ridiculous.
Out primary identity is now based on being consumers. It is based on what we can buy and on what we have.
