Jeff: One thing that has helped me is embracing the idea of minimalism in all aspects of my life. It was refreshing two years ago, when we dragged multiple bags of our accumulated "stuff" to the car, and dropped them off at the thrift store. Vowing to not replace them with new junk is the key.

Getting off the consumerist treadmill might not make big box stores happy, but looking around my peaceful, uncluttered, minimalist home, I can take a deep breath and not worry about what I don't have.

David, funny you should mention the thrift store. My family are on our way there now. Good wisdom.

Hell, if I stayed within my means I wouldn't be eating either... it's just as bad with radios and custom, hi-end flashlights-like putting a loaded needle in front of a heroin addict, and I dare say, just as intense a craving!
