One thing that I've learned over time is that I have expensive tastes. I've told myself that it's just coincidental that the thing that I want happens to be the most fashionable, or expensive, or unique. I want a Samsung LED 120 hz TV, I want a VOX AC 30 amp, and a nice surround system, I want 3 nice dress shirts from express (because their dress shirts fit me the best, and I want a new cd playing alarm clock with a red back light because my blue one is too bright.
Have you ever made a list of all the THINGS you want to buy?
At want point are my desires for these things justifiable?
If I'm still giving money to charities, paying my tithe, and saving money for the future, am I then allowed to have these nice things?
Clearly, only a few of the things I WANT are necessities, so where is the line?
How do we know when it's okay to splurge?
