So its just about having a healthy balance then?

balance is subjective to your goals and experiences, all I can say is that I would estimate that I am more minimalistic than those around me and I have a general aversion to buying things. This is mostly because this dynamic plays out automatically in my mind when i consider purchases, although sometimes it fails to keep me from a stupid purchase now and then.
