Ever been struck by the complete opulence of consumerism? Like smacked in the face by it to the point where it makes you feel sick in the stomach?

Consumerism is “a social and economic order that encourages the acquisition of goods and services in ever-increasing amounts”. Consuming and purchasing things you don’t need in compounding quantities… will not make you happy or satisfied or fulfilled. It will cause you stress as you have to earn the money to pay for these things, then store them in your already full home.

Today explore the traps of consumerism as well as some alternatives that don’t require you to completely give up buying things but allow you to be intentional in how you consume with you being the boss, without consumerism dictating your choices.

What else could you do with the time and money you mindlessly spend on the ever-increasing acquisition of goods?
