Cause of death: an incredibly dysfunctional society where overconsumption and consumerism are out of control while education and adulthood are neglected.
Marco, I like you, but every other post you make is about something you just bought or you are considering buying. So this is hard to take, coming from you.
You have a point, but I don’t feel it’s in the same league:
- I only buy things I can afford. The only debt I’ve ever taken on was financing for a car, which I paid off after 18 months.
- I never buy anything at retail if I can reasonably get it online.
- I know better than to assume that anything at retail is ever a “good deal”.
- I’ve never killed anyone trying to get into a Wal-Mart at 5 AM.
