In spite of a tough economy, many of us value experiences over stuff. Many well off Americans purposely drive a very modest economy car instead of luxury cars, live in a modest house versus an extravagant mansion — all with the thinking that we don’t want to be saddled down with stuff.
As parents, often we make it a priority to expose our children to the world. International travel is not cheap, and taking a wife and kids makes it even more expensive. But we believe it brings family so much value that the monetary expense is worthwhile.
Are you a stuff junkie or an experience junkie?
