For the record, we opted out of the consumer society a long time ago, for me personally, it was 1986.
We picked our sofa up cheap in a secondhand shop, it’s not fashionable, but it is comfortable and as it’s made from old-fashioned wood and horsehair with feather cushions, will no doubt out live both of us. Our TV is secondhand, it is not flat screen or the latest tech, it’s an old Panasonic Quintrix, but it works, so what more do we need. Yes we have a computer, but it’s a cheap non-branded one, and we have a cheap basic mobile phone for use in emergencies only. We rarely buy new clothes, some of mine are nearly 10 years old.
Basically we don’t own anything new or expensive, what we buy is practical and functional, who gives a damn if it’s not the latest model. It’s such a shame that people can’t see how much they’ve been brainwashed.
OK, rant over, if you ain’t got a life now, it’s too late!
