Understanding Needs vs. Wants

Our unit turned over last year, Dec.2020. One thing we realized: balance your needs with your wants.

Although the process of distinguishing between your wants and needs may seem pretty straightforward, these distinctions can be hard to discern. Some conditions are easier to nail down. We make many of our purchasing decisions subjectively rather than objectively. (I want to buy new clothes or shoes or buy appliances😆).

Once you become better at differentiating between wants and needs, you’ll probably see that you’ve been able to fulfill more of your desires over the years than you realized. And that can be a significant turning point. ☺️

When you find things that you want to buy or do that you currently can’t afford, it becomes all too easy to focus on those things to the point of overlooking what you already have. Take time to reflect on all the ways that you’ve been fortunate and the needs you can meet every day.

When you get clarity about your wants and needs, you can determine what’s most essential and plan your budget to make those dreams a reality. ❤️
