Shopping—–Need or want?

Mindful Observation- Day 13

Most of the times, I don’t shop if I take a day’s (or few hours’) break before hitting “BUY NOW”.  With this simple step, I have saved myself from accumulating more than I need. Haven’t completely tamed the retail bug but slowly and steadily getting there. Once that time of impulse buying lapses, the “need for more” dissolves. A few days ago, went to buy a temple for Janamashtami. Beautiful, LED-illuminated temples were quite captivating but thankfully re-assessed my needs and just an hour later, found them a luxury rather than a necessity. Back home, cleaned and re-arranged my existing temple and patted myself from giving in to the “need for more”.
