Humans need organization. Without having some sort of system and order, there would be nothing but chaos.

Necessities are about human survival.

As for accessories, it would be difficult to live without some accessories but for different reasons. More for reasons of boredom, amusement, and sometimes inspiration.

Some accessories contribute to your well being, but they have also been known to take away from it.

They can be used to cause peace as well as chaos.

A television, for instance, has been used as a very efficient tool for inspiring people to do miraculous things.

Many programs have touchedrepparttar heart of mankind simply because they had a television.

But a television can also be used as a very efficient tool to manipulaterepparttar 130875 mind and provoke unhealthy feelings and responses.

Many programs have brought outrepparttar 130876 worst in people.

The toys have gotten more advanced but they still entice us inrepparttar 130880 same way. Such shiny new things. So many buttons and functions.

"Think of what I can do with that! I want I want I want!"

You may not turn to Barbie dolls or toy cars anymore. You've probably moved onto bigger and better things...

Real cars. Or clothes that make you look as thin and curvaceous as Barbie.

Accessories are not items that are necessary for your survival. They are extra things that you want but most likely do not need.

They appeal to your "I want" senses.

Necessities onrepparttar 130881 other hand appeal to your "I need" senses.

Take a look around your home right now. Does your home say "I want" or "I need?"

Are you someone that often buys what you want or only what you needrepparttar 130882 majority ofrepparttar 130883 time?

Remember to weigh an item of interest againstrepparttar 130884 two categories. Begin to ask yourself ifrepparttar 130885 item you want is really necessary for your survival.

Is it? Or do you just want it?
