There is in most of us an underlying desire to buy cool stuff.
To avoid this consumerism,
- Learn to be more conscious of impulses when ready to buy something.
- Learn to pause, and to breathe, to let the physical desire wane.
- Force to wait, if the purchase isn’t an absolute necessity.
- Think about it, and analyze whether it’s something really a need. Often it is not.
- Slowly improve upon this, over time.
