“There’s always something better to make you feel like what you have isn’t good enough, when it was better than anything you had when you got it.”
—my wife

She’s a smart lady.  Her words are definitely something folks should pay attention to, particularly as they strive to buy a better car than there neighbors, a house they can’t afford, and other things they don’t have the cash for.  I imagine if more people followed that advice, we would not be bailing our banks out.
