    I put "wants vs needs" to the test with a trip to Costco. I'm pleased to say I came out with exactly the items on my list, which is a win for Costco shoppers everywhere. :-D

      Heard a great Freakonomics podcast on Costco, talking about their goal being to make shopping *harder,* so you load up on everything you need at once but don't have to go as often (hopefully easing on crowding, burdening staff resources less, and with the unstated benefit of reducing travel). They didn't talk about the "needs vs wants" aspect, but I think you're right about at least easing your fellow shoppers' days =)

    Day 1: started the online home energy assessment, realized I needed to be at home to get answers to some of the questions! Also, explained "need vs want" to my husband so we can both be thinking about it.
