Musings on the acquisition of non-essential material goods (aka stuff)

Pringles would have you believe that "once you pop, you can't stop".  A simple and catchy marketing phrase; however, conceived with the intent of persuading mankind of the impending doom that awaits all who partake of said salty snack.  Spray-on-flavor-chips aside, it's hard not to resist the polished promises of gratification that saturate the airwaves.  As for me, I more easily succumb to guarantees of efficiency.  For example, there's always another kitchen gadget out there that can do the job quicker, easier and better.  If left unchecked, I could amass an exorbitant collection of culinary contraptions.  To my benefit, I am happily and blissfully married to a most loving and wise woman, and therefore comprehensively checked.  That's a good thing, because there's more to life than the next shiny thing.  #family  #peaceofmind
