  1. Agreed! Nobody’s perfect, though; I still catch myself wanting to do some impulse shopping when I’m depressed or upset. For me, the key has been to find free or incredibly cheap ways to treat myself, like taking a fancy bath or going for a walk.

    I just wrote an article on the same topic on my own blog! I agree with this whole-heartedly! But it’s my spouse that has the “buying” “owning things” problem. I’d be content to sell it all and set sail… Thanks for reminding me (& him) that I’m not crazy thinking Doing is more important than Having…

      Thanks for the comment, Kim. I will have to check out your article this weekend!

      It can be a big challenge to get on the same page with your spouse, but working through those issues and merging your values and goals is well worth the effort and patience required.

        We’ve been married a really long time and plan to stay that way. I manage to deal with it… I shared your post on my blog’s FB page – maybe he’ll read it and see my viewpoint is NOT ridiculous. (I AM planning to sell most of MY stuff and head out on the road when I retire in another year or two. – Maybe he’ll decide he’d like to come with me)
