What I want vs. what I need

I’m in a bit of a spending predicament! There are things I want and things I need and at this moment I don’t think there is one same item that finds itself on both lists. It’s like this itch that needs to be scratched. You feel my pain, right?


Things I want… 

Aftershokz headphones

Palm pocket phone

flamingo yard ornaments

Garmin Forerunner 425 Music

stock in Phillips 66


Things I need…

pay mortgage (every month)

take the dogs to the vet

pay my taxes

anticipate future investments


Sometimes it’s so hard to be an adult! Do you have any nuggets of wisdom to share with me to help temper the pendulum of planning for the future while still enjoying the present?
