You can see it all over our culture with movie stars spending $30,000 on a designer handbag to carry their dogs in, or in the rock-n-roll lifestyle where music videos clearly portray the idea that ”money is no object,” often times in a competition of who can have the most gold chains or throw the most cash in the air.

Do You Really “Need” That? Or Do You Just “Want” It?

The difference between defining something as a need or a want can mean the difference between a blown budget or a healthy savings account.
