Why do I want stuff when I've no money but don't want it when I do have money?
I often see stuff in the stores that I would really love to buy but can't afford, but then when I do have money to go shopping, I no longer want the same stuff.
It is the same reason we want chocolate more when we are dieting.
Maybe it has something to do with the fact that when your money is in your hand, you don't want to part with it.
It's fun (in a way) to wish and hope and dream about spending money, but when you finally have some money, you think twice about making purchases because when that money is gone, it's gone.
I believe that it was Thomas Paine that said "What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything it's value".
