Default Re: PRESSURE: To Keep Up with the Joneses

The real reason people get caught in the constant buy cycle is the need to fulfil an excitement edge.

Advertising merely creates a want at the beginning, but after a while, bods get addicted to the allure/excitement induced by instant purchasing; espeicially credit & ebay for instance.

Buying is a thrill. That's all.

The worst thing about being a constant purchaser is you need to get rid of the old stuff once you've replaced it with new gear. Besides being in debt; being a 'hoarder' can be just as detrimental... leads to 'security/comfort possesions'.
