Needs and Wants

Feb 25th 2013 at 3:53 AM

In these increasing bleak looking times, more and more people are having to cut down on expenditure as they look to retain a firm grip on their finances. For many, the key to this is to cut down on excess, to say: “I don’t need this”. Ladies have to come to terms with not always having the latest season's fashion, whilst gentlemen are realising that for all the allure escorts in London possess, they are often a little too expensive for a weekly meeting.

It’s not necessarily a matter of cutting out expensive things. A glass of good red wine is fine but going through a bottle every few evenings may be a little bit too costly. Similarly, a night on the town doesn’t have to break the bank, providing that excessively overpriced drinks and kebabs aren’t purchased. It’s rather like eating a healthy diet: it’s ok to have ‘bad’ things once every while but it’s when indulgence becomes routine that things begin to become dangerous. Going out 2 or 3 times a week is going to put a serious dent in anyone’s wallet and many should consider finding alternative forms of entertainment. Having a night in, cooking a romantic meal, joining a naughty book club, all things that can bring a lot of joy for a lot less money.

Being frugal isn’t always easy though. In an ideal world, everyone would be able to cope with the minimum and stay happy but this isn’t how things really work. Everyone needs to relax and unwind. If they live their life constantly counting pennies, they’ll enjoy it so much less, it’s just not worth it. That’s why it’s best to have the occasional splurge and to enjoy it without feeling guilty. Every so often, it’s ok to spend a little bit too much, to pay that little bit extra to get the better product or the easier time. Being good with money doesn’t mean never spending it, it means appreciating expensive outlays rather than letting them sneak into everyday life and drive the price up.

After all, life isn’t about doing the bare minimum. It’s not about getting everything for as cheap as possible. Yes that food you got from the cut price supermarket might not have cost as much but it tastes horrible. Ditto with the wicker chairs purchased instead of fabric ones. Sometimes, it’s best to invest in a little bit of quality. It’s the old conundrum of needs vs wants: we should make sure that we have enough to cover our needs, but once we do, there’s nothing wrong with making sure we have a bit of what we want. That’s what keeps life interesting and fresh. The allure escorts, expensive suits and banoffee pies all possess is part of a larger desire to indulge in things that are not essential to live. Pleasure is an essential part of a good life, it’s what keeps us happy and sane. If the world is to come out of the recession in a good shape, it must learn to become cautious and not miserly.
