Must haves versus wants

Need or want? Sometimes deciding which category something goes in is the hardest thing.

But I need this and that and these and those and much more. Have you heard this before? Stick people don't like that, but what about you.

Nowadays many luxuries are considered necessities. Do you really 'need' a new car or you just want it? For many of us, it's a want, really, as is the internet and cable TV and cell phones.

For those who must travel constantly in their jobs but also be reachable (did these jobs exist before cell phones?) then a cell phone is a requirement, and less expensive than phone cards and stopping on the road to call and talk about stuff.

Sometimes a need can be met with something less expensive (do you really need a cell phone with all the tricks?). Re-evaluate your needs, and keep your electronic toys as long as possible.
