What you’ll hear in this episode:

Imagine there’s something that you want to buy. It’s a non-essential item, and your budget is enough even to buy the most expensive model.

Do you buy the top-of-the-line version or just the basic one that’s enough for now? That’s what this episode is about: practical utility.

This means before you buy yourself anything ask: “Does this help me live a better life now or is this really just for my future self?”

The episode recommends being an optimistic utilitarian because the practical option is often the better choice.

Quotable Quote:

Look around. All that clutter used to be money.
