Wants or Needs?

Many of us find that saving money is a hard thing to do. In my case, since I don't have much money, I seldom buy things that aren't really needed. I always measure if it is a want or a need. I always double think if I should buy the new trending clothes when I knew it will be outdated soon. I still buy though, not just much as others do. Are you on the same track with me?

Nowadays, I only buy what I need. If what I want is really needed, then I buy it.

Yes. it's good to know the needs and wants. I used to buy what I want but ever since I joined the group"peso sense" I learned how to save money. Now, I only buy my needs

I used to do this kind of picture in my math class during school time. Needs are important than wants.

I prefer buying things that I need but sometimes I invest money in useless things and later regrets about it.
