Do you value the material things you have?

Lately, I noticed that I'm taking more care of the material things I have. Like the bag I've been using for a year now which my dad gave me. The shoes I bought during college years which I still use now, I placed it in a neat box. My 3 year old mp3 player, my 2 year old flip flops, lol. It's great that they are still in good condition after all this years and I'm still enjoying while I use them. It makes me realize now that when we buy things we must go for good quality so we can use it for a long time. If we buy some things just because it's a craze, in a few months it will just be in our cabinet, sitting there, lol. If we value our money, we must value the material things we have.

Before, I did not actually value things. I am speaking about material objects here. I do value 100% people. But in the past object where just like eh! Okay it broked; but now I tend to see to it I take good care of anything I have since, these objects are either given by people who care for me or I bought from my own pockets.

Yes of course because especially the thing that I've buy for my self but sometimes i didn't value it in terms of i don't like it. Sometimes I've prefer to my nice thing than to the worst thing.

i have a bass guitar that i bought when i worked at malaysia and it is still with me. it is almost 10 years, i repainted it on a more cool design but everything else is still original. when i use this guitar i make sure that i handle it with care and there are no scratches. i dont even wear a belt when playing it for the buckle cause scratches at the back of the guitar. i value it so much because i spend my own money buying it. i also cherish the IPOD my wife gave me, i have this for 4 years already. there are a lot of things in my cabinet that i cherish and that is the top 2.

I learned a long time ago to value the things that I have because our family doesn't have an endless supply of money and because of that I really feel good when I am able to get something new. I have shoes that I've had for a couple of years and my computer is several years old as well. I think that the best thing that I can do is to use the things that I have as long as I possibly can so that I can afford better when I have to replace these things.
