It's about discipline, sacrifice and making decisions that benefit your self-interest.

I agree emphatically. Its about making good choices on what matters to you and yours.

So much of the stuff we buy (in our materialistic society) gets used for only a while and then pitched.

Making good choices means avoiding copying what everyone else does just because everyone else has one. Buy the stuff that matters to you and that you will use. Avoid the rest.

This very basic approach can save funds that are otherwise wasted. Better to save and invest those otherwise wasted $$.
