Toys only bring peripheral joys for me now. They're fun to have, but I'm not craving them anymore. Material goods are luxuries for physical senses; what I need is joys of the mind, emotional fulfillment.

Almost in direct contradiction, however, I have found myself on a shopping flurry for "necessities": new jeans, new sneaks, new inline skates. Though I haven't yet purchased these, I can already feel that burden on the pocketbook as I look into them more. At least I have personal shopping consultants who can help with these decisions!
