    This is so good! I love how you address a real problem – need vs. want – but do it in such a funny way! Just started following your blog, but I love it. Going to share this on my FB page. Think it is good reading for everyone.

    I wonder how much of this comes down to the seeming truism that while material wellbeing is not a zero sum game, status is.
