Have you noticed that almost everything you want is possible to have? No matter what it is: new television or computer, vacation, furniture or even a car. There are many ways to get it immediately. And we claim that the easier it is to get things the less it has value.
So easy! If you think about the last decade, there has been a huge change on how to buy and fund consumer goods as both have become easier. Quick and unguaranteed loans with long repayment periods have been easy to get and easy to spend. Basically you don’t even have to get up from sofa to spend it all. A study from 2013 has shown that shopping will make you even more miserable. Even the children have never ending Christmas or birthday and due date for toy is 1-2 weeks.
Too much! If you look at the resent news about a decrease in consumer goods market or read about people’s desire to get rid of stuff you will find that there might be a new trend rising. Of course this long economic recession and insecure future has had its effect to this but yet there seems to be something bigger going on. People do not get the desired satisfaction by getting stuff. Instead they feel so sick and nauseous that a new profession has been created: Professional Organisator. These organisators will help you to organize your belongings and mind.
Wake up! Take a look at Tavarataivas – a movie about a man who took all his belongings to a warehouse and got it back one by one. Or limit your products to one hundred. Or even try to attempt to “Don’t buy anything day”. Try to increase social life! Get experiences! Go to Nuuksio National Park! Enjoy life itself! We promise you will become a better person.
