Needs Vs Wants

Did you feel sometimes you want so many things and yet your pocket become empty in the middle of the month. Still another week to wait for the salary.

I face this situation many times because i think i can not differentiate between need and want. I google and found quite a few articles and images that describes what is the difference between these two. Actually, i know what is it bt when i want to buy something, i become 'kabur' because the things that is so pretty, so fancy, and so great makes me forget about my pocket. Waaaa.... There goes my money ($$$) having a wings.... (terebang sudah lagi lui sya)...

Alright, here is something to share and hope this will help us better understand these two things.
Need- something you have to have
Want -something you would like to have
The difference between a need and a want is pretty simple -- until you set yourself loose in a store. Double chocolate chip ice cream? It's a food, so mark it as a need. That designer t-shirt that fits you perfectly? Well, you need more shirts, so why shouldn’t it count too?

Tally up the damage caused by a few justifications like these, and suddenly you've spent far more than you intended.

What's the solution?

A better understanding of what a need really is.

In actuality, you only need four things to survive:

A roof over your head
Enough food and water to maintain your health
Basic health care and hygiene products
Clothing (just what you need to remain comfortable and appropriately dressed)

Everything that goes beyond this – a big house, name-brand clothes, fancy foods and drinks, a new car – is a want.

Does that mean that you should only buy the things that you need? Not at all. Life is meant to be lived, not survived. Treat yourself to some wants along the way, but do so when you can afford to, and enjoy those wants as the extras that they are.

Hmmm... What do you need? What do you want? Think the best for ourself okay..!! Good day!

With Love,
Little Rose
