WOW. Watched a program and £6k just on the guys wardrobe and £400+ for the ladies clothes with labels price tags still on.
Stop and hand them a note with bemorewithless.com or theminimalists.com on. That would save these people so much time, money and stress. Being brand loyal is one thing, but spending money for the sake of spending money just because of the appearance via “social media” is crazy. Then there’s the car… £12k more than a lesser branded vehicle. It’s nuts. If you don’t have the money don’t do it. The pain is worthless. Don’t buy worthless products, they don’t make you happy. It might feel like they do; they don’t.
It did spur me on to try a new saving technique though. Save instead of worthless spending.
