The poorer I became, the more I'm shocked by these behaviours. Don't get me wrong, I loved shopping, and even was sort of a compulsive buyer, but more more I feel the need for a simpler life. Getting only the necessities. Stop and smell the flowers, listen to good music, read a book, and take pictures. Even if I could, I wouldn't go for the latest gadget or camera. Mine is good enough. When I look back on all the unnecessary things I bough in the past and never used, I feel sad and ashamed.
