Part of the probblem is emotional-mental - really getting through to yourself that it is a WANT not a NEED. I feel like I NEED books. But I wouldn't die if I didn't have books. And in any case with a little creative effort I don't have to forego books. If I ever decide that I can't afford Friends of the Library I will go to the public library.
Don't forget interlibrary loans, it's a wonderful thing!
We used to purchase way to many books. Lately we've been using the library and if we really like a book and want to read it over & over, then we'll buy it.
Otherwise we just borrow them, read them, & return them. Plus this method won't require us to purchase more bookshelves!
