I love the idea of less is more. De cluttering. Having just the items I need — no more. I’ll generally buy the best there is. Any time I go for the cheaper option I end up regretting it.
I also have young kids and their view is the more the better. They need space, want to experiment, try lots of new things. Possessions make them feel good — a simple rock might become their biggest possession, until all of a sudden, it is forgotten and doesn’t exist anymore.
I live between these two worlds going from one to the other and I love them both.
