I agree with Melody's article ("Consumerism at its Worst", February 2002). We are a society of buyers and 'keeping up with the Jones'.
I love my Mom but she is one of those that has to buy new clothes all the time. Redecorating the living constantly trying to maintain that 'Martha Stewart' image.
Most Canadian are up to their neck in debt. Its time we stood back and reassessed our values.
Family, friends and helping others must be our priority, Not the best car, the best house.
