After being away for a few months from the place I usually live, I sat in our local shopping center and watched people walked past.
Interestingly, I realised that the population had changed: much more Asians are now running the shops, many more African immigrants were now part of the current population. I wondered to what extent this newer changes impacted on consumerism! (By the way, these are happening all around the world.)
Where would they stop and purchase what they liked? Is this why there are so many shops changing since last year or is it simply because of the exhorbitant rent and change of habits of people buying online?
Buying online is fine for a few items. Luckily, for many people it will never replace the human contact and the fun people have going shopping and browsing.
When you go shopping next, sit down and think how much people are buy stuff they don’t really need and how much that impact on the garbage and on cluttering of their homes.
When you wish to buy something next… take it in your hands, look at it, then ask yourself “Do I REALLY need this?”.
When you buy online, think twice before tapping that ‘add to cart’ button.
We don’t NEED much to BE happy ❤
