Ah, the question that 99% of people do not grasp nor follow, regardless of where you are, who you are & how wealthy or not you are.

I have asked myself this question “all” of my life. “is this a want or need”. I’ve found that most everything I ask myself this question about, turns out to be a want rather than a need. So I didn’t buy it.

Not buying because it was a want has saved me a fortune (literally). By living that way, there is not a want in the world that I cannot purchase now without missing the money at all.

I have 6 kids that I’ve tried to teach this to with only 2 grasping the meaning of it. Thus 4 continue to struggle their way through their lives while 2 are well on their way to financial success. Four will be living on SSI when there old enough to draw it while two will be millionaires by time they reach 35.

Amazing how one little statement can have such profound results depending on how one grasps it.

In regards to your question I can only answer .. there are many wants (tools) for my shop but since I do not “need” them they will remain UN-purchased by me.
