    I sense that we MAY all come to agreement on this subject quickly, so here's another definition of "materialism" that might be fruitful: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ma...­.

      Somehow, I doubt it;)

      It could be more fruitful if Molly corrected the URL rather than cryptically predict futility. Lol

      I can see how as income increases, amount of stuff bought that wasn't needed can increase. For me and many others, one of the criteria in deciding whether to buy something is if it can be afforded. I believe in living modestly because there will always be something big that you need or would really feel good about doing with money and it's much easier to make small corrections than to spend too much and be a slave to your own debt. That said, some things make me really happy-- even more than positive experiences. What's really cool is when you can combine the two... for instance, taking an entire weekend to lovingly rebuild your $5,000 computer.
