Why Do We Have To Have A Lot Of Things?

Well, my Hubbies family has been a round a lot the last 2 weeks since his brother died. And what have they all been saying. That we do not have anything!! They wonder why we don't have a huge tv and why we don't have cable. Oh well! So what , if our tv is about 20 years old and not hdtv. Why do we need cable? We have a roku and get our tv viewing through that for $7.99 a month for Netflix. Our car is "old" in their eyes. But , it is paid off! We are happier since we have gotten our bills in order and control. We only have our utility bills. Nothing else. I asked my hubbies nephew what bills he had each month and he listed so many and then went on to complain about his paycheck being gone before he even gets it! By time he got done he was depressed.  He said that a lot of it goes to bank fees. We are so happy that we got out of the banking system. Took us about a year , but not having fees is so much better! Everyone needs to get their priorities in order. Is having a 55 inch plasma tv going to make you happy? Is having a new car with a huge payment going to make you happy? It did take us a long time to get the old ideas of having more and bigger and newer than your neighbor out of our thoughts. Now we know that having a happy, HEALTHY,  and prepared family is more important than ANYTHING!
