stop wanting stuff

The book I finished yesterday really emphasized the idea that the best way to stop buying stuff is to stop wanting stuff, and that’s really stuck with me. Reducing the amount of money I spend is pretty damn hard when it feels like it’s me punishing myself and denying myself stuff I want. I’m really into this idea of addressing the underlying thoughts and emotions and behaviors that cause me want to want stuff, instead of just brute-force being like “no stuff for u.” It’s something I’ve come close to doing before, but there’s something about seeing this idea stated so plainly that’s really clicked with me.
