You are ansolutely right - people are obsessed with "keeping score" in these things, not least because money is the biggest scorecard ever invented. And the assumption that you always have to buy stuff rather than not buy stuff is a corrosive one.

I have a terrible habit of using the big things I don't buy as an excuse for the small things I do, which is a head-trick, and utterly useless.

All I can say in defence of my intermittent profligacy is that it usually involves cheap things (eg individual CD's or books), and tyou can buy a lot of those for one big electronic Shiny.
