I see people rushing around and staring at their shopping cart screens right now in a frantic rush to acquire ‘things’ for their loved ones. But how many of those things are your loved ones really going to use? I remember my parents and others from their generation keeping and cherishing beloved keepsakes until they actually wore out from years of healthy use. The gifts we give now are not cherished like that anymore. How many of your gifts from last year do you still see being used today? The real truth may surprise you.
