#36 Only buy what you need.
Shopping must always be done with some goal in mind. You must show some resolve and thoughtfulness while shopping. You must stop and think before billing, approach sales rationally and calmly, remain focused, streamline your needs. Most importantly, you must appreciate to value experiences over just consumption. You must only purchase what you require, and borrow the rest from others. Instead of buying infrequently utilized items such as camping gear, tools, or even some dishes for some party, borrow or rent them via your friends or via services such as Rentalic and NeighborGoods.
